Say Aloha: Hawai’i Tourism Oceania’s roadshow is back!

Whip out your Hawai’ian shirts and grab a mai tai because registrations have just opened for Australia’s largest annual Hawai’i roadshow, Aloha Down Under!

Running from 5 to 13 August, the blockbuster roadshow will visit Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Parramatta, Christchurch and Auckland, with representatives from accommodation, airline and activity suppliers across the Hawaiian Islands.

Giselle Radulovic, Country Manager Australia for Hawai’i Tourism Oceania, said the 2019 Aloha Down Under roadshow is not to be missed.

“With more than 1000 guests attending across Australia and New Zealand each year, Aloha Down Under is an increasingly popular event for trade partners,” she said.

“In 2018, the Hawaiian Islands experienced the largest volume of visitors from the Oceania region to date, over 400,000.

“Market research shows us that travel agents are an integral part of the booking process, and Aloha Down Under is a key opportunity for agents to become well versed in Hawaii.”

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

Guests can expect live Hawaiian entertainment, receive the latest destination updates from Hawai‘i Tourism Oceania and will have the opportunity to win incredible holiday prizes to the Hawaiian Islands.
