Hawai‘i Convention Center Is In the Game!

February was an active month for us here at the Hawai‘i Convention Center. On top of our list is the launch of our new state of the art athletic courts! With new volleyball courts and basketball courts, the Hawai‘i Convention Center is the perfect venue for sports tournaments of any size. The first athletic tournament to use our Volleyball courts is the AAU Volleyball Honolulu Grand Prix held last February 17 – 20, 2017 in our Kamehameha Exhibit Hall 1. An estimated 1,000 women athletes, ages 12 to

18, from the mainland U.S. and throughout Hawaii participated in this inaugural event and we look forward to having them back again in the future!

Another notable event in February is the return of Pola Cosmetics group. We welcomed 1,300 guests from Japan who enjoyed a morning of festivities which included an award ceremony, lunch and Hawaiian entertainment in our Kalakaua Ballrooms.

Lastly, we welcome the Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography, for here for their

2017 ASLO Meeting from February 26 – March 3, 2017. This is an important meeting to address water issues and promote scientific exchange across the freshwater to marine continuum. The conference theme, “From the Mountains to the Sea” emphasizes the connectivity of our planet’s aquatic systems, and underscores the urgent need to share knowledge, insights, discoveries, and different world views

about the lakes, rivers, streams, aquifers, wetlands, and oceans that comprise our Earth’s hydrosphere. We welcome ASLO’s 2,000 attendees and wish them a productive meeting here in Hawai‘i!
