Speaker: Kainoa Daines, senior director of brand for the Hawai’i Visitors & Convention Bureau

Presentation: How to Embrace a Destination’s Culture to Create an Enriching Meeting Program

Daines will leave his listeners with the following takeaways: 

  1.  Understand what lies beyond typical function rooms and how to provide a real "wow" experience at your meetings.
  2.  Embrace the cultural elements of the destination and learn how to include them into your event.
  3.  Experience a destination that provides a natural component of historical significance through cultural practices and learn how to communicate that to attendees.
  4.  Learn how delegates can engage with the indigenous culture through Mālama Hawai‘i, the HVCB's corporate social responsibility program.

Daines understands the need to find a home for meetings and events, but in order to do so, you first need to get to know your destination—the home for your meeting—to effectively welcome others inside. Daines knows Hawai’i as both his home and a home for meetings and events, his front door is open and he is ready to welcome you to better understand what makes Hawai’i and its culture special.
