Destination: Honolulu

Hawaii’s largest city offers more than just beautiful beaches.

With a convenient convention center, central location, and unforgettable venues, Hawaii’s capital proves it’s just as much a business destination as it is a vacation spot.

Convenient convention center. Steps from the resort area of Waikiki, the 1.1 million-square-foot Hawaii Convention Center has almost 19,000 committable hotel rooms within one mile. The center also offers nearly 150,000 square feet of total meeting space, a 200,000-square-foot exhibition hall, a 9,984-square-foot rooftop terrace, and a 35,000-square-foot ballroom.

Central destination. Honolulu’s mid-Pacific location, between the economic centers of the East and West, puts it at an advantage in terms of attendee accessibility. The Daniel K. Inouye International Airport is served by 29 airline carriers that service gateway cities in both North America and the Pacific Rim.

Memorable venues. Honolulu offers a number of venues that are sure to make a meeting memorable for attendees. The USS Missouri Memorial on Pearl Harbor has space to host everything from casual receptions to formal dinners, while the Bishop Museum can accommodate hundreds of attendees in its terraced lanai and Hawaiian Hall Complex.
