The Hawai`i Convention Center has received its 14th consecutive Prime Site Award from Facilities & Destinations magazine.
Prime Site Awards are decided by meetings and conventions industry leaders directly involved with site selection, including promoters, booking agents, and event planners. Voting is based on convenience of location, facility attractiveness and maintenance, professionalism of staff, cuisine, and technological capabilities.
Facilities & Destinations magazine, a monthly publication for professional planners of meetings, entertainment, and special events, described Hawai`i as “An ideal place for an international meeting of political, cultural, and business significance,” and noted the significance of hosting APEC’s 21 member economies, which drew an estimated 20,000 visitors to Honolulu in November 2011.
The magazine also highlighted the Center’s high-value global marketing strategies, which include custom-designed collateral and the multi-language microsites to assist organizations in building international attendance.
