Hawaii Anticipates Tourism Boost

The 2011 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation will be hosted here in Hawaii where over 10,000 people will attend. This is the first time the APEC summit has been held in the United States (!) since 1993, when it was held at Blake Island, Washington.

This should bring lots of publicity and awareness to our beautiful state, right about the time our economy is booming again!

The Summit will be held at the Hawaii Convention Center in November 2011. It features leaders of 21 participating countries, senior government officials, business leaders, international economists, Asia-Pacific experts and worldwide media.

There hasn't been a high-level international gathering in the State of Hawaii since 2001, when the Asian Development Bank met here. Let's hope for a similar economic run that we saw after that last event!!
