Meet The Team

Island Style Innovations is a locally owned & operated, full-service Destination Management Company (DMC) based in Hawaiʻi. Founded in 2014, we operate on the five major Hawaiian Islands and our years of experience and many trusted relationships gives us the unique ability to deliver the highest quality product and service for the best value.

Our group demographics include incentive programs for Insurance, Financial, Pharmaceutical, Technology, and various corporate direct clients.

What sets us apart is our creative style, personality, knowledge, experience, and work ethic. We believe trust is earned and we are not allergic to listening or to hard work! We are living Aloha; our ‘ohana dance hula, play the ‘ukulele, and attend Hawaiian school. This is our home and we respect and represent it with care and passion. We have a mission to operate in a way that brings joy and success to your program while protecting our islands.

Our depth comes from our knowledge and experience, not in numbers.

Aloha,
Tatiana & Colleen
