The month of April saw a combination of popular events and a few citywide conventions. Notable mentions include the First Hawaiian International Auto Show which always draws a large crowd every year. More than 40,000 guests stopped by this 3-day show to view over 350 of the hottest new cars and trucks all in one place.
We also welcomed the 2018 AACSB International Conference & Annual Meeting (ICAM) last April 22-24. Organized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), ICAM 2018 is their largest event and brought together 1500 of the world’s top business academics and collaborators for 3 days of world-class networking opportunities and learning new best practices to acquiring a global perspective of the current state of business education.
Wrapping up our month is the ARVO 2018 Annual Meeting. The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) is the largest and most respected eye and vision research organization in the world. From April 29 to May 3rd, approximately 10,500 international basic and clinical researchers will share the latest breakthroughs in vision research. They will engage with their colleagues right here at HCC as they work to advance their science and expand its support within our communities and governments.
Lastly, we also held our very own Signature Event, the Sunset Mele and Night Market last April 20th. This free community event featured a great entertainment lineup and awesome food options from our very own Executive Chef Kevin Nakata and other local food vendors. We also showcased the Academy Award winning film Coco in our Liliu Theater 310 and welcomed over 50 local vendors in our night market.
