Hawaii Convention Center
The Hawaii Convention Center is a 1.1 million-square-foot Convention Center located on over ten acres at the edge of Waikiki, Hawaii. It is a 200,000 square-foot level exhibit hall, a 2.5 acre rooftop Hawaiian garden, and 140,000 square feet of meeting and has extensive ballroom space for excellent Oahu Activities. The Center is open to the outdoors, which invite the smell of flowers inside. There are native Hawaiian plants in abundance at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu. These Flowers and other Hawaiian Plants can be seen on one of the Oahu Tours and Oahu Activities offered by Hawaii Discount such as one the Oahu Nature Tours. There are landscaped grounds, lanais, and courtyards which account for more than six acres of the Hawaii Convention Center.
There is a bronze statue in front of the Hawaii Convention Center which symbolically acknowledges the Hawaiian people. Inside of the Hawaiian Convention Center in Honolulu are paintings of volcanoes, ocean views, waterfalls, and fishponds which are displayed alongside images of Hawaiian royalty. The soaring rooftop canopies recall images of Polynesian sailing canoes which today can be seen at the Polynesian Cultural Center where one of the best Oahu Luaus is held.
The Hawaiian Convention Center opened in 1998 and is the largest "design-build" project undertaken by Hawaii. The Hawaii Convention Center combines both modern requirements and keeps the comfort and culture that are uniquely Hawaiian.
The Honolulu International Airport is only 9 miles West of Waikiki Beach, West of Central Honolulu and 7.5 miles West of the Hawaii Convention Center. The Hawaiian Convention Center in Honolulu is located on the Ala Wai Canal, and is bordered by Kapiolani Boulevard and Kalakaua Avenue.
