- Concentrate a significant percentage of consumer direct marketing through digital channels, in recognition of the potential reach and cost effectiveness of digital marketing, and increased connectivity due to changed work and lifestyle patterns. Wherever possible, initiatives will be integrated to ensure audience reach through as many touchpoints as possible – including public relations, consumer direct, social, digital, tactical and trade.
- Be the brand leader in the market, to inspire the consumer, ensure the right match of experiences, and for trade to align with, all in efforts to ensure competitive advantage for the destination and attract a traveler that chooses Hawai‘i for the right reasons. This includes matching holiday dreams and aspirations with the rich and diverse experiences of the six Hawaiian Islands.
