Giselle Radulovic, Country Manager Australia for Hawai’i Tourism Oceania, said If you’re a travel agent, the Aloha Down Under roadshow is an event not to be missed.

“In 2018, over 400,000 visitors from the Oceania market travelled to the Hawaiian Islands, the highest visitor numbers seen by this region to date,” said Gisell Radulovic, country manager Australia for Hawai’i Tourism Oceania.

“Travel agents remain an integral part of the booking process and Aloha Down Under is the perfect opportunity for agents to become well versed in the destination.

“Aloha Down Under remains an increasingly popular event, with more than 1000 agents attending across Australia and New Zealand each year,” she said.
