Hosting Conferences on Maui Island
For conferences, exhibitions and large social events, Maui Island’s upscale conference centre hotels offer you the space and services to ensure a successful event. Free WiFi and concierge services help with planning while modern conference rooms have everything you need for your event to run smoothly. And when the conference is over, take a dip in the hotels’ pools or grab something to eat in onsite restaurants.
Best Hotels to Host a Conference on Maui
If you’re looking to hold an event in one of the most exclusive spots on Maui Island, look to the conference centre hotels in Wailea. A hotbed of premium four- and five-star resorts, this high-end area has hotels with state-of-the-art conference facilities as well as well-maintained golf courses perfect for more informal meetings, negotiations or just for catching up on industry gossip over a round.
Wailea’s pristine beaches and designer fashion boutiques are ideal for downtime, and it’s all just 18 miles from Kahului Airport, Maui Island’s international airport.
Things to Do in Maui after Your Conference
Choose a conference centre hotel on the western coast of West Maui to be close to the former whaling port of Lahaina. Once an important town in Maui’s whaling industry, the area is now a buzzy resort destination that brings together pretty beaches, trendy bars and traditional Hawaiian entertainment. There are more high-end conference-centre hotels further up the coast in Kapalua, where you can follow in Tiger Woods’ footsteps in a post-conference round teeing off at Kapalua’s world-famous Plantation Golf Course.
Exploring Iao Valley State Park
While you’re in Maui on a conference, take time to explore the beauty of the island. Head to the Iao Valley State Park at the base of the West Maui Mountains, where hiking routes lead to the historic site of the unifying Battle of Kepaniwai. Another of the park’s iconic sites, the Iao Needle is a large rocky outcrop that overlooks the valley.
Driving the Road to Hana
Drive down the Hana Highway to see some of Maui Island’s best sea views. The road also passes by lush rainforest, and there are plenty of places to pull over and hike through the trees to secluded waterfalls and swimming holes.
