Hawaii meeting and event planning programs concentrate on Oahu (where Honolulu is located), The Big Island, Kauai and Maui, but those are just a few of the choices. The diversity in Hawaii seems daunting at first, but hunting for meeting and event planning in Hawaii can be as easy as booking hotel-laden Waikiki Beach (which is also near the convention center and major business districts). Hawaii meeting and event planning is all about taking the meeting away from the hustle of the city to the plentiful native culture, local foods, golf courses and scenic meeting resorts of Hawaii’s Big Island, Kauai, and Maui.
The most popular meeting cities in Hawaii for events and conferences include Maui, Kauai, Big Island (Kailua-Kona), Big Island (Kohala Coast), and Oahu (Honolulu).
Kauai is one of the planet’s most beautiful islands—lush, scenic, untrammeled, spellbinding—and the farthest of the main Hawaiian islands from the mainland American coast. It contains Mount Waialeale/Alikai Swamp, often noted as the world’s wettest spot. Kauai event venues frequently share the island’s ethereal beauty, by proximity if not design.
Honolulu isn’t just a destination for pleasure trips – it also knows how to get down to business. Home to the striking 1.1 million-square-foot Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu has hosted annual conferences and events for many well-known corporations, including the National Psychological Association, National Medical Association, Hawaii State Department of Health and National Pest Management Association.
Honolulu boasts a superior year-round climate, with temperatures averaging 77°F, so anytime is a great time to visit. Guests can feel safe and secure, as Honolulu has the lowest rate of violent crime of any U.S. city with more than 390,738 people. Honolulu not only works hard, but plays hard, with numerous championship golf courses, an abundance of adventure and leisure hiking, supreme surfing, fantastic snorkeling among living reefs and serious sun tanning. With options like these, it’s no surprise that Hawaii frequently ranks among the top destinations for leisure travel in the U.S., and is a locale that entices droves of event attendants and Honolulu meeting planning professionals.
Event facilities include the Naa-ina Kai Gardens, (which is close to, if you can find it, Secret Beach) in Kilauea, this beautiful botanical garden can look after up to 200 persons. In Lawai, just north of Poipu, another lush spot is the Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Spa, which includes the Moir Gardens and has space for 300. Famous on the island is the Smith Family, which started catering to tourists in 1946; they can put on luaus and return trips ending in feasts to the gorgeous Fern Grotto. Reopened in 2011, the Kauai Lagoons Golf Club now has 27 holes (the original 18 were designed by Jack Nicklaus) and a clubhouse with an open-air lobby.
As 17th largest island in the United States, the island offers meeting planners plenty of spectacular resorts and Maui event venues that combine business with pleasure. Nestled on Maui’s sunny southern shore, the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa features unparalleled architecture, cutting edge technology, fantastic amenities and incredible indoor and outdoor meeting facilities. With over 100,000 square feet of flexible function space, the resort boasts 15 meeting rooms, two executive boardrooms and the glamorous 28,000-square-foot Haleakala Ballroom, Hawaii’s largest resort ballroom. Host a lively reception for up to 2,500 people among tiki torches and lava rock walls at the Molokini Garden, or plan a black-tie gala at the 9,922-square-foot Beach Courtyard, located steps away from Wailea Beach. Also in Wailea, the Four Seasons Resort Maui was named a top Hawaiian resort.
