Hawaii VCB kicks off road show

HONOLULU -- The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau is starting its second Experience Aloha Hawaii on Tour, a promotional road show that stops at malls the U.S.

The tour offers consumers interactive exhibits, displays and live demonstrations of Hawaiian culture. The first tour was held last year.

"We built upon what people liked, added more cultural exhibits, improved graphics and made the exhibits more user friendly," said HVCB president Tony Vericella.
