Venues and Accommodations

The Hawai`i Convention Center combines the modern requirements of a state-of-the-art meeting facility with the beauty, comfort and culture that are uniquely Hawai`i. The site for the Center was selected for its close proximity to 10,000 committable hotel rooms. A limited amount of rooms are available at the EWC housing facilities, University of Hawai`i at Manoa, and various hotels in Waikiki and Ala Moana area, which are listed at the conference website.
