Contracts for services to USA, Canada, and International marketing companies for programs that attract tourists from Korea to visit the State of Hawaii. Funding is intended for the creation and implementation of a comprehensive marketing approach and brand-management plan that will increase the number of Korean visitors to Hawaii and promote the state as an attractive destination.
The destination marketing management services being solicited include:
- Develop and deploy a brand management plan that will increase visitor expenditures for the Hawaiian Islands in alignment with HTA’s strategic directives;
- Integrate activities with the travel trade (retail and wholesale) and consumers through multi-faceted, traditional and non-traditional means;
- Develop and facilitate partnerships or other relationships with Hawaii’s visitor industry and community stakeholders; and,
- Promote Hawaii as a meetings, conventions, and incentives (MCI) destination.
The HTA creates, manages and supports the development of unique tourism experiences such as community and cultural festivals, sporting events, natural resources, and community and cultural programs. The HTA also directly affects the visitor experience through its support of career development, visitor assistance programs, the integration of community and residents’ considerations, and a deep respect for the Hawaiian host culture. All should be considered as RFP responses are developed.
