Waikīkī Historic Trail Content Enhancement and Streamlining RFP


The Oʻahu Visitors Bureau (OVB) is soliciting proposals for professional services and invites qualified and experienced creative content development firms to submit innovative proposals to refresh, streamline, and enhance the content of the Waikīkī Historic Trail, for a contemporary audience. This historic trail was created in 1997 by co-founder of the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association (NaHHA), the honorable Dr. George Kanahele. The intent of this trail is to preserve and highlight the historic, cultural, and geographic significance of sites in Waikīkī. The trail was originally comprised of uniquely designed bronze surfboard markers and was born out of a city-private sector collaboration. Since 1997 these surfboard markers have helped to guide residents and visitors alike through the rich history and culture of Waikīkī. For over two decades these markers have served as a key connection to the culture and history of this wahi pana (special place).

This RFP seeks to enhance and streamline the existing content to reach new audiences with the development of updated and interactive content. This RFP moves forward the Oʻahu Destination Management Action Plan. Specifically, Oʻahu Action J: “Work with community partners to develop, market, encourage, and support more collaborative, curated experiences that enrich residents and visitors alike.” Additionally, Oʻahu Sub-Action J.2: “Commit resources to promote alternatives to overused sites or going off the beaten path. Redirect visitors to areas that can accept higher traffic away from residential areas. Enhance these places with signage and messaging, develop programs, educational offerings, increase exhibits, etc.”
