HAWAII

When one thinks of Hawaii they think Aloha. Aloha is about sending and receiving positive energy, about treating others with respect. So when you factor in the spectacular beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, along with its culture of aloha, it is little wonder that Hawaii is one of the most visited destinations in the world. Hawaii just feels good. Beyond the island vibes and natural beauty, Hawaii offers unforgettable venues, sightseeing tours and hotel selections that will make your next corporate event something people will talk about for years.

Hawaii Convention Center is located in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, within walking distance to the famed beaches of Waikiki. The largest convention center in the state, it is easily accessible from Honolulu International Airport. From Honolulu you can fly to all the other islands. Optional activities might include a volcano tour on the Big Island, or maybe a group tour along Maui’s Road to Hana. Maybe a teambuilding zip line canopy tour on Kauai. Hawaii’s natural bounty, coupled with the expertise of AlliedPRA Hawaii, will have everyone at your next corporate event returning home feeling refreshed and full of aloha.

Three words to describe you: Simple, Generous, Positive

Your bucket list event to plan: Guests start with a morning dip in the ocean with delicious tropical smoothies and local baked breakfast treats. They head to Piiholo Ranch for a horseback ride before a helicopter picks them up for a three island tour of Maui, Lanai, and Molokai. Guests land at the Kahului helipad, where a private car is waiting to take them to Mama’s Fish House for lunch. After, guests enjoy a massage on the beach, and get ready for a perfect evening of cocktails and dinner overlooking the ocean at sunset.

Favorite way to spend a Saturday: Taking a monster hike with friends to one of the many challenging trials in Hawaii followed by a huge meal with plenty of drinks.

Your Hawaii secret: Finding great local places to eat and getting embedded into the Hawaiian culture. Every Island has its unique places to go and eat and to be a part of Hawaiiana.
