About this Event

Eia Hawaiʻi, ka huina o ke ao.

Here is Hawaiʻi at the crossroads of the world.

 

In the middle of the vast Moananuiākea, Hawaiʻi lies at the crossroads of a rapidly changing world – the intersection of heaven and earth, of east and west, of tradition and innovation.

Literally translated, KA HUINA refers to an intersection or nexus. This term serves as the central theme to this one-day conference that will explore the nexus in Hawaiʻi, of tourism, culture, community and sustainability.

To be convened on Wednesday, March 10 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, KA HUINA will showcase project-leaders that converge at the intersection of Hawaiian tradition and innovation. Our collective success in preserving the Hawaiʻi we love for future generations is dependent upon our ability to navigate this intersection.

Adjacent to our conference room, attendees will have access to HANA LIMA AVENUE, a collection of boutique designers and creators of Native Hawaiian product lines.

We also invite attendees to join us for the KIPA ALOHA RECEPTION, a pau hana networking reception from 5 – 6 p.m.

 

Who should attend this day of learning? Hawaiʻi tourism and business professionals, as well as members of the general public, will be surprised and inspired by the impact that Hawaiian cultural values and traditional practices are having on tourism-related experiences for residents and visitors alike. From the sports of surfing, golf and football; to the fields of physics, astronomy and the sustained revitalization of Hawaiian language; to the power of storytelling through music; to modern-day ʻāina management practices, new horizons for canoe voyaging, sustainability initiatives and the expanded relationship between Hawaiʻi and the United Nations – each of these initiatives will serve to reaffirm that an array of progressive leaders in Hawaiʻi are affecting meaningful change at the intersection of tradition of innovation.  What designers and creators will be featured on Hana Lima Avenue?

Time:  8:00am - 4:00pm (Room TBD)

Hawaiʻi's artisans and entrepreneurs live at the intersection of tradition and innovation – whether it's exploring new materials and methods to express traditional forms, bringing traditional knowledge to contemporary home decor, or bringing traditional botanical remedies to innovative body care products.

To celebrate the creativity and spirit of these entrepreneurs, we've put together a curated shopping collection alongside our Ka Huina conference – and we're calling it Hana Lima Avenue.
