Both Uchiyama and Wienert said a similar, month long media saturation campaign conducted by the HVCB earlier this spring in San Francisco produced impressive results.”What we have to keep in mind is that we’ve got limited funding, because we’re a state marketing against other countries like Mexico and the Caribbean, and all these guys that just have unbelievable war chests,” Uchiyama said. “So we have to be really smart about how we utilize our funds, and this saturation of a market basically had Hawaii everywhere you turned. So that’s the kind of penetration that we’re going to need to move the needle moving forward, especially when Mexico launches their campaign.”According to Wienert, the total operating budget of $71.4 million for 2010 is essentially the same figure the HTA worked with in 2009.
