HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), the state’s tourism agency, has released a request for information (RFI) from qualified entities that are interested in participating in the upcoming procurement for destination marketing management services for the Korea market.
The RFI is for market research purposes only in preparation for a future procurement solicitation. The information obtained from the respondents will be used to develop a list of interested sources. No evaluation of participating respondents will occur and participation in the RFI is not a promise of future business with the HTA.
