Why choose the Hawaiʻi Convention Center for your conference or event? Here are five great reasons:
1. Ideal Meetings Location
It’s in Hawaiʻi and our mid-Pacific locale is ideal for East-meets-West congregating. Zoom in on the Hawaiʻi Convention Center and the picture gets even better. The facility is in the heart of the state capital, just 8 miles from Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and close to some of Hawaiʻi’s top attractions: the Bishop Museum, ʻIolani Palace, the Honolulu Art Museum and Lēaʻhi (Diamond Head), to name a few.
What’s more, the Hawaiʻi Convention Center is right on Kalākaua Avenue, just a convenient walk from the premier destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in Honolulu’s resort area of Waikīkī.
2. Hotels, Hotels, Hotels
There are more than 30,000 overnight rooms in Waikīkī, just steps from its picture-perfect, and iconic crescent shaped beach. More than 28,000 of them sit within a 1.5-mile radius of the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, so when the weather’s nice (which, in Hawaiʻi, is a near guarantee) your attendees will delight in a leisurely stroll to their HCC events.
3. Unbeatable Event Spaces
The HCC measures up! Its 1.1 million square feet of meeting space can accommodate events of up to 13,000 attendees. There are 47 meeting rooms, a 200,000-square-foot exhibit hall, two tiered-seating theaters, a 35,000-square-foot ballroom and a registration lobby of the same size.
Topping it all off is a 2.5-acre landscaped rooftop events terrace. For banquets and receptions—there’s no better view.
4. The True Hawaiʻi Experience
It’s Hawaiʻi at heart—in style and with service that’s shaped by the spirit of aloha. The open-air design invites gentle sea breezes, sprawling panes of glass invite an abundance of light, and attendees can meet and mix in public spaces ornamented with works by several local artists and landscaping that includes gently flowing waterfalls and mesmerizing fishponds.
When it’s time for F&B, the facility’s 20,000-square-foot production kitchen incorporates Hawaiian traditions into dishes and sources farm-fresh ingredients for meals guaranteed to delight your guests with island flavors and flair.
5. Consistently Exceptional Performance
With the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, you can rest assured you're making the smart choice. HCC delivers over and over again, with satisfaction ratings from meeting planners coming back consistently between 95 and 100 percent.
