The Hawai‘i Convention Center (HCC) is a premier convention and exhibition center in Hawaii, located in Honolulu on the island of Oahu. The Hawaii Convention Center is the largest exhibition center of its type in the state. It is located near the world-famous Waikiki district of Honolulu.
The Hawaiʻi Convention Center is the largest “design-build” project undertaken by the State of Hawaiʻi. The bid process for the design began in 1994 with LMN Architects being chosen to design the building. Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo (WATG) was chosen to design the interior incorporating historical Hawaiian quilt designs and nature based motifs throughout.
The Hawaii Convention Center combines the modern requirements of a state-of-the-art meeting facility with the beauty, comfort and culture that are uniquely Hawaii. The site for the Center was selected for its close proximity to 10,000 committable hotel rooms. The spirit of the Hawaii Convention Center is the spirit of Aloha – welcoming and serving all who visit the Center with unconditional Aloha.
This center is also the place of the famous Pacific Rim Jazz Festival. It is the intent of the festival to highlight and feature many of Hawaii’s own talented artists and musicians and in the process allowing them the opportunity to share the stage with world class artists.
