Hawai’i’s restaurants, banquets, special events, and weddings sectors have been subject to changing State and County rules during the pandemic and continue to operate with limited capacity and COVID-19-related constraints.  This segment has faced additional challenges due to its dependence as well as collaboration with other tourism sectors such as lodging, transportation, and air service. Please join us for our conversation with industry leaders to discuss the impacts and opportunities of the pandemic; managing capacity, adjusting for the new county tiers, and your questions!
