Hawaii beckons with sales blitz

An upcoming series of travel trade events in the U.S. being held by the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau will come close to the Canadian border, creating an opportunity for Canadian travel professionals. The fall 2012 Hawaii Sales Blitz events will make its closest Canadian border stop in Bellingham, WA on Sept. 20, at the Shuksan Golf Club. The trade show will run 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., followed by a dinner and seminar until 8:30 p.m. The event will focus on creating travel demand for Hawaii, and directing the demand to Hawaii Destination Specialists with the goal of increased sales to travel professional partners.
