LIHU‘E — The Hawai‘i Tourism Authority is supporting the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association’s Ka Huina 2022 Conference to discuss the path toward a regenerative tourism future for Hawai‘i.
The Zoom conference is today and Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon each day.
It is free and advance registration is required. The Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association website, nahha.com/kahuina, is where registration can be accomplished
In the middle of the vast Moananuiakea, Hawai‘i lies at the crossroads of a rapidly changing world — the intersection of heaven and earth, of east and west, of tradition and innovation.
The global pandemic of 2020-22 has further accelerated the changes already compelling the state to reimagine its future.
Literally translated, “Ka Huina” refers to an intersection or nexus. This term serves as the central theme to the NHHA’s conference, which explores the nexus — the huina — of community, culture, tourism and sustainability, four distinct pillars ultimately bringing foundation and structure toward goals for a regenerative tourism future, according to an HTA press release. How they intersect, how they depend on each other, how they allow reimagination of the future, are the opportunities Ka Huina seeks to uncover and celebrate.
