Our HCC Hawaiian Value of the Month is Lokomaika`i.
Our Vision Statement for the Hawai`i Convention Center is to be the world’s most desirable convention and meeting destination.
An essential element in helping us to accomplish this is lokomaika`i. The translation for lokomaika`i is to always act with generosity and kindness toward others. Lokomaika`i is an extension of aloha and love.
From beginning, to everything in between, to end – from meeting you with lei and aloha, to coordinating with your team and providing the best solutions for your event while brightening your day with an island treat or experience, to our aloha and mahalo goodbye’s – we unselfishly give and share what we have to offer and extend our talents with friendship and warm-heartedness. This is lokomaika`i. Our goal is to host an event so productive and successful, and experience so unique and memorable, you will want to return.
Guests who have been here share their experience of lokomaika`i with you. Nancy Todd, Congress Manager, American Chemical Society on what they experienced in Hawai`i:
Lokomaika`i is appropriate for this month of April and throughout the year! Aloha!“No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.” ~ Amelia Earhart
