Hilton Waikoloa Village updates convention center

Hilton Waikoloa Village continued improving the Hawaii Island’s resort through updates and renovations, and by the end of September will have 175,000 square feet of newly refurbished meeting and convention function areas that will have a selection of ballrooms, breakout rooms, pre-function areas, exhibit facilities, promenades, boardrooms and scenic outdoor venues.

The conference center is receiving several updates, including additional hang-points to better facilitate technical audiovisual productions, enhanced lighting with flexible applications, and new wall and ceiling coverings to minimize audio reflection and provide clear acoustics. An expanded stage and two tiers for audiences in the Monarchy Ballroom will provide meeting and event organizers with additional space for guests and visitors.

Inspired by the Hawaiian Islands, the tropical theme is tied together through the textures and floral patterns that permeate the furnishings, fixtures, and artwork found throughout the facility. There are also pops of color and native materials, as traces of blues, corals and indigenous wood now decorate the meeting facilities.
