Global Impacts of COVID-19: How behaviors have changed and Hawaii business should adapt


Join us for a discussion on how behaviors have changed across the globe and what Hawaii-based business can do to adapt to the “new normal”.
fabbit and HTDC will hold an event jointly. Our panelists will share insights from Japan and Germany and focus on changes in consumer behaviors as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted restaurants, accommodation, travel, and coworking. We’ll explore what this means for businesses here and how businesses can adapt before Hawaii reopens tourism.
