Event Services

"E komo mai" means “welcome” in Hawaiian, and that’s exactly how you and your group will feel at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center (HCC).  From the time you book your event at the facility, you’ll be assigned an experienced and enthusiastic Event Manager who will work with you closely to see that your every program need is met.

Through this collaboration, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the facility and what we can achieve there together. You’ll come to understand the building’s policies and procedures, and we'll connect you with local service professionals in audio-visual, décor, special effects and more.

Your Event Manager will communicate your needs and requirements to the HCC’s other departments, ensuring your program runs seamlessly from start to finish. We invite you to contact one of our dedicated Event Managers directly to learn more.
