Hawaiʻi Convention Center Services

When you plan an event at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, you’re not only booking a venue, you’re booking a comprehensive experience. Our dedicated team ensures that every aspect of your event is thoughtfully addressed and seamlessly executed. From informative promotional collateral materials to site inspection, we go above and beyond to set you up for success.

Event Planning Collaboration

Upon licensing event space, event planners are paired with a seasoned and enthusiastic Event Manager dedicated to ensuring all requirements are met with precision and care. Through this collaboration, planners gain insights into the facility's intricacies, learn about the building’s policies and procedures, and get to know local service professionals in audiovisual, internet, decor, and more.

The assigned Event Manager takes charge of communicating the planners' needs and requirements to the HCC’s various departments, ensuring the program runs seamlessly from start to finish.

Pre-Convention Services

While the Hawaiʻi Convention Center Event Management team assists the event planner with services within the building, the Hawai‘i Visitor & Convention Bureau’s Client Services Team will handle all needs leading up to the meeting that require the guidance of a destination expert. For more information, kindly reach out to Kylee Dean-Kobatake from our Client Services Department at kdean-kobatake@hvcb.org.

Promotional Collateral Materials

Our informative brochures, maps, photos, stock articles, videos, and more are available to help you promote your event to attendees.

While attendees are always welcomed with the spirit of aloha on the islands, the convention center's prominent banners amplify the initial impressions of Hawaiʻi. Customization of these banners is available at a fee.  

Site Inspection Assistance

We’ll help you connect with key contacts and schedule appointments to coordinate tours and inspections of the Convention Center, surrounding hotels, special event venues, and nearby attractions.

Attendance-Building Assistance & Materials

We collaborate with the event planner to tailor attendance-building services through social media, direct marketing, and on-site marketing at your lead-up conventions or trade shows to meet your attendance objectives. 

Our commitment to sustainability has moved us towards exclusively offering digital promotional materials for event planners to offer attendees prior to your Hawai‘i program to get attendees excited and help generate high attendance numbers. A customized table card with QR code will direct them to the appropriate information.  

‘Elele Program 

Our ‘Elele program connects our clients to local community leaders whose professional work aligns with your mission. Whether it's showcasing state-of-the-art telescopes for astronomers, clean energy initiatives for policymakers, or climate change research for geoscientists – the ‘Elele service can take your program in exciting new directions by harnessing local knowledge. Additionally, ‘Elele work to build a ground swell of support for your program locally, and sometimes in Asia, to help drive attendance.
