The People. The Place. The Hawaiian Islands

Hawai‘i is like nowhere else – and sharing the values of our people and encouraging visitors to experience our unique culture is what makes this place so special.

We invite your clients to see our islands’ natural beauty in a new way, as the backdrop, while showcasing the beauty of our values as kamaʻāina (local residents). From the melodic sounds of Hawaiian music on Kaua‘i to spreading aloha with fragrant lei on O‘ahu. From the mālama (care) of Native Hawaiian knowledge on the island of Hawai‘i to using food to bring community together on Maui. We encourage visiting groups to seek engaging experiences when they come, which helps spread the benefits of tourism to broader communities throughout these islands.

In Hawai‘i, it’s not just the place — it’s the people – that make the Hawaiian Islands so unique, beautiful and worth experiencing.


Mālama is the Hawaiian cultural value that means “to care for” and the practice of it allows your attendees to find purpose, meaning and a deeper connection while experiencing Hawaiʻi, and especially the island of Maui. There is plenty for your clients to see and experience throughout the island from Kapalua and Kā‘anapali to Wailea and Wailuku, as well as Kīhei, Kula, Makawao, Pā‘i‘a and parts in between.
Maui’s green-flanked mountains slope toward the sparkling seas, waterfalls splash into refreshing pools and deep valleys resonate with history and culture. This is an invitation for your clients to see our islands’ natural beauty in a new way, as the backdrop, while showcasing the beauty of our values as kamaʻāina (local residents).

Hawaiʻi’s Green Initiatives | Sustainability

The Hawaiian Islands are some of the most ecologically diverse in a single location. With 10 of the world’s 14 climate zones, Hawaiʻi is ‘all the world in one place.’ On the island of Hawaiʻi alone, attendees can experience four of the world’s five major climate zones – and all but four of the world’s subzones.

The islands’ beauty is unsurpassed, and their fragility equally so. The people of Hawaiʻi are committed to supporting programs that protect their verdant beauty for generations to come. Stewardship of our islands inspires everything we do.
