It’s All About Rail – Please join us at the next ThinkTech Hawaii Venture Capital Association luncheon on April 26, 2012 at the Plaza Club 20th Floor from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. for a great conversation about “Getting around in Hawaii – The Press on Rail.”

We will have an engaging and high level discussion about the topic from a different perspective. No debate, not rail or anti-rail, just an in-depth examination of the topic with a host of journalists familiar with transportation in our city. We will explore the costs, the challenges, the impact, the trade-offs the likelihood of success, transportation oriented development issues and what it all means to our crowded highways and byways.


Joining us with opening remarks will be our special guest, the Honorable Mayor Peter Carlisle, who will express his vision for Honolulu. Following the Mayor’s remarks we will present two panels of journalists: 

* The first panel will examine “The coverage on Rail,” moderated by Steve Petranik of Hawaii Business Magazine, with panelists Jerry Burris, Richard Halloran, Mark Platte and Barbara Tanabe.

* The second panel will examine “The Story on Rail,”, moderated by David Tumilowicz of Hawaii Business Magazine, with panelists Mark Abramson, Michael Levine, Ian Lind, Neal Milner and Malia Zimmerman.

Meet and explore these things with them at the next ThinkTech HVCA luncheon on April 26, 2012 at the Plaza Club 20th Floor from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Enjoy good food, great people and a first class networking experience. Reserve your seat today by registering on the link below or at hvca.org or call Gail Caveney at 382-4638.
