Hawaii is the picture-perfect destination for MICE programs in countless different ways, and while they vary depending on your group and goals, here are ten list-topping reasons “Why Hawaii” should lead the list for your next meeting, tradeshow or convention.
Aloha’s ambiance: Survey data confirms that attendees leave Hawaii feeling refreshed, invigorated and completely at ease. It’s a setting that fosters the flow of ideas, inspires ingenuity and innovation, and nurtures stronger working relationships and better teamwork.
When it comes to hospitality, Hawaii’s world-class hotels and resorts set the bar for hookipa (hospitality). You’ll find more than 50,000 combined overnight rooms throughout Hawaii’s six major islands — Oahu, Maui, Hawaii Island, Kauai, Lanai and Molokai — at every price point and in every style.
For global gatherings, Hawaii is in prime location. It’s easy to get to Hawaii from both North America and Asia, and Hawaii’s multilingual, multicultural population makes people from all around the world feel welcome.
Where else can attendees become paniolo (cowboys), hula dancers, volcano explorers or surfing legends for the day? The opportunities for one-of-a-kind teambuilding opportunities and memorable offsite events are endless.
Beyond simply "beautiful," Hawaii suggests that Mother Nature does play favorites. The islands' lush landscapes and sublime scenic vistas make Hawaii a consistently compelling draw for attendees.
