2020 Annual Outlook & Economic Forecast Forum

February 5 @ 7:45 am - 1:30 pm

While the 1920’s represented a “Roaring” period of significant change and growth, what’s ahead as we kick off “the Twenties” of the 21st Century? Continued but slower growth? Cautious optimism? Find out what our line-up of experts think. In addition to the annual economic and visitor industry forecasts, this year’s forum will also feature a panel of representatives working to grow Hawaii’s LGBTQ market; a look at new research using GPS location data; and an update on visitors’ transportation options for getting to/from/around the islands. These insights will help you better prepare and “roar” into the 2020s!
