Molokai Tourism Meeting Postponed
HTA News Release
The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) and Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau (MVCB) are postponing the Destination Management Action Plan (DMAP) Meetings for the island of Molokai. Originally planned for Friday, Nov. 12, the virtual community meetings for Molokai residents will be rescheduled to a later date.
The community meetings for Maui and Lanai will continue as planned, on Tuesday, Nov. 2 for Maui and Tuesday, Nov. 9 for Lanai.
In these virtual, interactive community meetings, tourism leaders will provide island updates specific to each island in a process that serves as a guide to rebuild, redefine and reset the direction of tourism on the respective islands. Participants will also have the opportunity to provide comments and ask questions.
The HTA published the 2021-2023 Maui Nui Destination Management Action Plan (DMAP) in March 2021. It is part of HTA’s strategic vision and continuing efforts to manage tourism in a responsible and regenerative manner. It was developed by the residents of Maui, Molokai and Lanai, and in partnership with the County of Maui and MVCB. The DMAP serves as a guide to rebuild, redefine and reset the direction of tourism on the three islands that make up Maui Nui. It identifies areas of need as well as solutions for enhancing the residents’ quality of life and improving the visitor experience.
The virtual sessions will cover DMAP updates, updates on island specific actions, Community Enrichment Program, Malama Hawaii Program and visitor statistics.
