The Hawaii Tourism Association announced their first and next generation global membership program.
“We are off to a great start,” HiTA president Juergen Thomas Steinmetz said. “The response to our initial international call to attract members was excellent. We received a lot of support from mostly medium and small size businesses. Their hope is to get a voice and establish new connections on a global marketplace.”
Membership is open to anyone. Current members include travel agencies, tour operators and travelers anywhere in the world. Local members in Hawaii are hotels, attractions, restaurants, shops, and regular citizens concerned about tourism.

The Hawai`I Tourism Association’s (HITA) mission is to inform, educate, and update the global travel industry on current and emerging trends, economics, events, activities, businesses, and marketing that help shape the tourists’ perception of the Hawaiian Islands. HITA serves as a discussion forum for issues affecting industry members interested in doing business in Hawai`I while also working with new markets and regions expressing interest in visiting the Islands. The association offers member services that enhance the Hawaiian experience and promote the indigenous people, culture, and uniqueness which differentiates the most geographically-remote place on earth from other island sand-sun-surf vacation and business destinations.
HiTA is not affiliated with the State of Hawaii or the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA)
