National Byways Conference, Minneapolis, MN

Aug 25, 2011

The America‚Äôs Byways Resource Center hosted the 8th biennial conference In August 2011 to showcase and educate state and local Byway leaders and community members about the Byways program, focusing on finance, visitor experience, corridor management and byway organization.  The four day conference allowed participants to take part in classroom and field workshops, roundtable sessions, breakfast and luncheon presentations, networking opportunities and peer to peer exchanges that focused on development, sustainability and livability. The conference saw an attendance of over 300 participants from Byways organizations in almost every State.  Hawaii Scenic Byways hosted a display table in the exhibit area of the conference hall for 2 of the conference days.  We displayed brochures for each designated byway, offered general Hawaii themed giveaways (provided by the Hawaii Tourism Authority) and exhibited information on our state, program and website, also making available a signup sheet for anyone requesting more information on our program or that would like to be added to our e-newsletter.
