Wagoner shared key updates on Outrigger’s expansion and future endeavours, including the recent acquisitions of Outrigger Kāʻanapali Beach Resort on Maui, and Outrigger Kaua’i Beach Resort and Spa on Kaua’i. This now completes their goal of having an Outrigger property of scale on all major Hawaiian Islands.

Additionally, he highlighted the collaboration between Outrigger Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel and Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group to introduce a unique, multi-year resident show tailored for Honolulu residents and visitors, marking an exclusive offering for Hawaii. The anticipated Grand Opening is scheduled for mid-December 2024. Furthermore, Wagoner re-emphasised Outrigger’s active pursuit to re-establish a presence in Australia with a beach resort. For years, the Honolulu-based hospitality company has eyed opportunities to return the brand to Australia.

In development news, Outrigger has made significant investments in revitalising its properties through refurbishments. Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort completed its US$85 million refurbishment, enhancing rooms, poolside areas, and most recently the introduction of their signature restaurant, Monkeypod Kitchen by Peter Merriman. The new Wellness Wing offers oceanfront accommodations and amenities like the Coral Kids Club.

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort has also completed its multi-million dollar refurbishment, updating rooms, communal areas, and introducing a new & Premium Ocean View category. Refurbishments at Outrigger Kona Resort and Spa on Hawaii Island and Ohana Waikiki East by Outrigger on Oahu are also in progress.

Attendees included key wholesalers, product managers, specialist travel agents, tourism industry associates, airlines, and travel and lifestyle media. Each evening, fortunate winners were awarded door prizes, which included return flights and accommodations to Outrigger resort destinations.
