As we reflect on Hawai‘i’s history, we see moments that were ripe for huliau, windows when deep transformation could readily occur. There is perhaps no better moment than today, in the anticipated wake of COVID-19, to boldly transform tourism, Hawai‘i’s chief economic driver, to a regenerative model that Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority is set to lead.



Bridge Brand Marketing and Destination Management plans that work together to embrace regenerative models that provide value to our communities, our culture, our ʻāina, and our visitors.
