Why Hawai‘i?

Hawaiʻi is the picture-perfect destination for MICE programs in countless different ways, and while they vary depending on your group and goals, here are 10 list-topping reasons “Why Hawaiʻi” should lead the list for your next meeting, tradeshow or convention.

Productive Atmosphere

Aloha’s ambiance: Survey data confirms that attendees leave Hawaiʻi 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, Hawaiʻi’s world-class hotels and resorts set the bar for hoʻokipa (hospitality). You’ll find more than 50,000 combined overnight rooms throughout Hawaiʻi’s six major islands — Oʻahu, Maui, Hawaiʻi Island, Kauaʻi, Lānaʻi and Molokaʻi — at every price point and in every style.

International Accessibility

For global gatherings, Hawaiʻi is in a prime location. It’s easy to get to Hawaiʻi from both North America and Asia, and Hawaiʻi’s multilingual, multicultural population makes people from all around the world feel welcome.

Experiential Offerings

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.

Natural Wonders

Beyond simply "beautiful," Hawaiʻi suggests that Mother Nature does play favorites. The islands' lush landscapes and sublime scenic vistas make Hawaiʻi a consistently compelling draw for attendees.

Hawaiʻi Convention Center

The Hawaiʻi Convention Center stands apart from any other: state-of-the-art, situated in the heart of Honolulu and distinctly reflecting the culture and character of the islands.

Off-Program Activities

History. Culture. Shopping. Dining. Attractions. Sports and recreation. And some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Hawaiʻi has it all and in abundance.

Enrichment Opportunities

Hawaiʻi’s thriving business communities and industries offer a wealth of enrichment opportunities in ocean sciences, health and wellness, international trade, agriculture, renewable energy and more.
