Now in its 25th year, the Hawaii Lodging, Hospitality & Foodservice Expo was launched in 1995 as the Hawaii Hotel & Restaurant Expo. It is now the largest trade exposition in the State and the only event providing access for industry buyers to a full range of products and services for the Hawaii’s most important economic sectors. Although seminars are occasionally offered, the objective of the Expo is to bring industry buyers and suppliers together for an effective marketplace for all on the exhibition hall floor.
4,982 registrants attended the 2-day event in 2018. They represented the purchasing needs of Hawaii architects, attractions, caterers, colleges, concessions, convenience stores, country clubs, government agencies, health clubs, hospitals, hotels, interior designers, military housing & foodservice, nightclubs, property managers, restaurants, retirement homes, supermarkets, shopping malls, timeshare residencies and schools. Admission is free.
Valued at over $18 billion annually, the Hawaii hospitality market is served by 70,000 hotel rooms and resort condominium rental and time share units and more than 6,000 restaurants and foodservice establishments.
