blic, and offered free food and drink courtesy of Budweiser,
as well as more than 40 booths representing publishers and
print suppliers from around the state.
For those who were more comfortable paying for something,
the Hawai‘i Publishers Association offered an option luncheon
and guest speaker for $35. HPU communication students and alumi
present enjoyed a top national speaker, Keith Bellows, the
editor-in-chief of National Geographic Traveler, the world’s
largest travel magazine (eat your heart out Conde-Nast) with
more than 5.9 million readers for every issue.
Bellows, who was only recently appointed editor-in-chief, addressed
a broad range of topics including the desirability of Hawai‘i
to the world’s travelers and the benefits of print media
in enhancing personal expression and allowing the creation
of quiet time for analysis and reflection.
