The mission of the Hawaii Convention Center can be summed up in three simple intentions:

  • To generate economic benefits for the citizens of Hawaii
  • To enhance the quality of life for all who live here
  • To treat our guests to the finest convention and meetings experience in the spirit of hookipa (hospitality) so they will want to return
