Need Media Contact for the Big Island of Hawaii

Does anyone have a suggested media contact at the CVB for the Big Island of Hawaii? Will be reviewing and photographing places to see in Kona and the Volcanoes National Park, July 31-Aug. 7. I'm also interested in lodging for one night at the Volcano Inn or similar on August 1.

  • Hi Susan:

    The gal I've had contact with is Laura Aquino.  e: .  808-326-7820. She used to host luncheons for travel writers in Denver. As for volcano lodging...there are some great B&Bs that will get you right in the rain forest for a unique experience.



    • Thanks, Joy. Laura sounds like a great contact. Will send her an email.

      Question for both you and Sandi, the HCVB now wants a journalist questionnaire plus a signed waiver form. This must be new in the last three years. I don't think I signed any forms when I did the feature article on Maui for AAA.

  • BIVB = Nathan Kam ...

    Hawaii Volcanoes National Park ...

    • Hi Sandi, Thanks. Good to hear from you. Nathan Kam  is listed on the Media Contacts as the VP of Travel & Tourism  and the email listed for him is   Maybe they both work.   Are you familiar with Noreen Kam? She's the one I approached this afternoon as I am starting to get the ball rolling and gather info.
