The Challenge… and the Solution

Royal Hawaiian Center is Waikiki’s premier shopping, dining, entertainment and cultural destination, featuring over 110 shops and restaurants over three city blocks of the world-renowned Kalakaua Avenue. In 2018, the Center selected Becker Communications to increase pre-arrival media coverage while highlighting its status as one of Hawaii’s must-visit destinations. Through our integrated approach to service, we’ve garnered significant pre-arrival media coverage in a variety of local and national outlets while expanding our scope of work to include both digital as well as traditional advertising.
