A group of professional meeting planners headed to the islands of Oahu and Hawai‘i with Hawaii Tourism Oceania on a dedicated MICE trip in October. The trip was filled with unique experiences and Aloha hospitality, beginning with a champagne toast in the Qantas Lounge.
Attendees experienced the diversity of two islands and enjoyed world class accommodation, staying at newly refurbished properties: the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, Grand Naniloa by Doubletree, The Ritz-Carlton Residences Waikiki Beach and the Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach.
The group took part in a variety of activities such as attending Hawaii Food and Wine Festival, hiking along an active volcano, swimming with the manta rays, a private helicopter tour above the rain forest and visiting the historic Hilo town. During their time on Oahu, the group learned about Hawaii’s culture and history at Bishop Museum, Pacific Aviation Museum and USS Missouri Memorial. The group also received a private Hula lesson at Opaeula Ridge, followed by an unforgettable farewell dinner at Kualoa Ranch Private Nature Reserve by Gourmet Events.
