The Hawaiian Islands say ‘G’day’ at Aloha Down Under

This week, travel agents across Australia have attended Oceania’s signature Hawaii roadshow, Aloha Down Under.

Kicking off on Monday and wrapping up on Tuesday 13 August, Aloha Down Under visited/is visiting Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Parramatta, Christchurch and Auckland, with representatives from accommodation, airline and activity suppliers across the Hawaiian Islands.

Giselle Radulovic, country manager for Australia at Hawai’i Tourism Oceania, said the 2019 Aloha Down Under roadshow was a huge success.

“The Aloha Down Under events are gaining increasing popularity year on year, with more than 1,000 agents attending across Australia and New Zealand,” she said.

“We recognise travel agents as an integral part of the booking process, and this roadshow enables them to gain further knowledge on the Hawaiian Islands.

“For exhibitors from the Hawaiian Islands, Aloha Down Under is a key opportunity for agents to become well versed in Hawaii, its products and experiences.

Guests enjoyed live Hawaiian entertainment, received the latest destination updates from Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania and had the opportunity to win exciting holiday prizes to the Hawaiian Islands.

In Australia, the roadshow’s five-day program also included a dedicated B2B function, where attendees had the opportunity to network and learn more about the Aloha state.
