Connect with the Team

With an intimate understanding of Hawaii’s Safe Travels Program and industry health protocols, our sales professionals — combining the expertise of the Hawaii Convention Center, the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau, and our international MICE specialists — can help meeting planners navigate our new approach to meetings and events in the Hawaiian Islands. Our team is well versed in phased reopening plans established by the state of Hawaii and island counties that prepare us to safely welcome back visitors, attendees and event organizers. In addition to serving as a resource for accurate and timely information about traveling to Hawaii, the team is also equipped with the latest information regarding hotels, activities and attractions that are open as well as indoor and outdoor venues best suited for physical distancing.

Our team is ready to work with meeting planners to organize and execute some of their most successful and memorable meetings in the most culturally diverse destination of the United States. Select your meeting type below below to find the Meet Hawaii team member near you:
