The Hawai`i Convention Center honored participants in its Hawai`i Business Ambassadors program at a special reception in February. Attendees enjoyed pupu and live entertainment while recognizing the hard work of these community and business leaders.
Hawai`i Business Ambassador Mel Nakamura of the International Association of Lions Clubs was honored for his support of the program. Jeanette and Ronald Chun, longtime members of the Honolulu Marathon Association Board, were also recognized. The Honolulu Marathon registration and exhibit are held at the Center each December.
The Hawai`i Business Ambassadors program capitalizes on the resources of the local community to provide even greater support and resources to clients, as well as expand the market potential and increase business for the Center. A large percentage of international conferences, and even national association conventions, need an invitation from a Hawai`i contingent to consider Hawai`i as a destination, making the local ambassador an instrumental tool in securing business for the Center and for Hawai`i.
