Haru Launches Tourism Partnerships
Tutansushi Roll

Eight Marketing is working with Haru on the creation of tourism and cultural partnerships in the Philadelphia region.

Haru is on a roll, literally, with the creation of the Tutansushi Roll, featuring genuine gold leaf, in honor of the King Tut exhibit at The Franklin Institute. The limited edition creation features spicy salmon and mango wrapped in a colorful mix of avocado, tuna and mango, and topped with caviar. It is then topped with a golden touch: genuine gold leaf.

The Tutansushi Roll was developed with assistance from Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation. Additional partnerships are in discussion with The Arden Theatre, The Philadelphia Fringe Festival and the Philadelphia Film Festival.

One of the most notable incompatibility issues has arisen with Quickbooks, with users alerted by the manufacturer that operating difficulties will occur with Windows Vista if users operate Quickbooks 2006 or earlier versions.
