Diane Woodburn of Maui No Ka Oi Magazine speaks with the Executive Director of the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association Rod Antone.

In this podcast Rod talks about the role of the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association, the importance of a diversified economy on Maui that doesn’t rely solely on tourism, how 2020 has been a reset to approach managed tourism in the future, a review of the current protocols in place in order for visitors to come to Maui, how hotels are creating safe environments for guests during their visit, the importance of returning residents to follow the same strict guidelines as visitors, how the tourism industry has been working with the Mayor to help keep the community safe as the island has opened up to tourism over the past few months, the importance of community partners that provide necessary testing on site when needed, and the expectations for visitor numbers over the December holiday season.
