Attendee information

More than 7000 business buyers from all the Islands of Hawaii attend each of The Hawaii Market Merchandise Expos. The business-to-business demographics of the State of Hawaii indicate that it ranks among the largest in the nation with respect to “cottage industries” as well as per-capita retail establishments. The cottage industry buyers especially generate a substantially large number of small quantity purchases per exhibitor, and they are well represented among all of the buyers who attend the expos.
Buyers must present properly qualified business related credentials along with matching photo identification in person at show site for admission. (Buyers may not register in advance via email for the Merchandise Expos).

Partner Voices

As event professionals, our job is to host people and while we can’t prepare for everything, it’s essential to develop an emergency plan that can be adapted to any situation. In Boston, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s (MCCA) Public Safety Team at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) and the Hynes Convention Center, have taken their experiences to develop a comprehensive crisis management training program, starting with crisis communications.
