John Monahan, CEO of Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau, says the state is situated perfectly between Asia and the US, making it a very attractive place to do business. The tropical state has a phenomenal incentives market and is especially alluring for planners of global meetings. Monahan states that Hawaii has remarkable, first-class meeting and post-meeting facilities for guests to enjoy.

He notes that the undeniable presence of millennials is changing the way they do business — for the better. He offers that even with the new changes this younger demographic brings, other groups are embracing the changes, as well.

Monahan adds that Hawaii conventions consistently deliver an impressive ROI with strong meeting attendance.
