CODE OF BUSINESS PRACTICES

In Hawaii, tourism is everyone's business. Members invest in a better tomorrow by supporting the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau's (HVCB) marketing efforts. Together, we convey how special Hawaii is, not only to the people who live here, but also to those who take a bit of Hawaii home with them each time they visit. This is achieved by upholding ethical business practices that preserve the reputation of the HVCB, its members, and the State of Hawaii. We expect our members to abide by the following HVCB Code of Business Practices that embody such business standards:

  • HANA PONO - Honoring our commitments and ensuring customer satisfaction through distinction, honor, and integrity.
  • KULEANA - Accepting the responsibility to provide goods and services of value and quality while obeying all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations.
  • HOOPONOPONO KUPONO - Doing that which is right by resolving any and all issues or challenges that may arise in a quick and fair manner.

As members, your efforts to follow these guidelines during your everyday operation will allow all of our industry partners to regard their membership with pride.
