A Meeting of the Minds in July

July is heating up as we welcomed two major citywide conventions to the Hawaii Convention Center. First was the IUTOX 15th International Congress of Toxicology last July 15-18, 2019. This was the first meeting held in the US in nearly 25 years and was a great forum for scientists in academia, government and industry to learn about the latest developments in toxicological science and regulation.

To wrap up the month, the National Medical Association (NMA) is holding their Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly from July 27 – 31, 2019. It is the third time the convention has been held at the Center, following meetings in 2007 and 2014, and it is expected to draw 2,000 attendees. The conference, with a theme of “Continuing the Fight of Opioid Addiction through Prevention, Education, and Behavioral Therapies in African American Communities,” features a variety of presentation theaters covering specialized medical topics, as well as exhibit hall activities, continuing medical education programs, special workshops and general sessions.

What an honor! We are excited to share that the Hawaii Convention Center has received the 2019 Venue Excellence Award from the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM). This award recognizes five IAVM member public assembly venues for excellence in management. HCC GM Teri Orton (left) and Director of Operations Mari Tait (right) received the award last July 24th at the 94th annual VenueConnect in Chicago.
The 15th International Congress of Toxicology last July 15-18, 2019 welcomed 1,200 attendees from around the world.
A perfect 5-O! We also welcomed back the 6th Annual Five-O Volleyball Classic to our Kamehameha Exhibit Halls. This tournament welcomed local adult volleyball teams, their friends and families for a three-day competition that culminated in a concert at our Kalakaua Ballroom.
Another lovely day for a Rooftop Garden reception.
A sweet showcase from our HCC Culinary team
Make-a-Wish Hawaii presented HCC with a plaque of appreciation to AEG Community Foundation, the newly formed charitable arm of AEG, which manages HCC. Earlier this year, Make-A-Wish Hawaii was awarded $25,000 to support its mission of granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses, and the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii was awarded $15,000 to support sports and culinary arts programs for at-risk youth. On behalf of AEG, our HCC GM Teri Orton (left) received the plaque from Make a Wish Hawaii President and CEO Trini Kaopuiki Clark (right).
We are excited to welcome back the National Medical Association (NMA) for their Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly from July 27 – 31, 2019. The NMA has served as the collective voice for African American physicians and a force for parity and justice in healthcare since 1895.
