Think of Hawaii and you might think of surfing and tourism, but this U.S. state, the isolated volcanic archipelago in the Central Pacific, are more than just their rugged landscapes. Whilst tourism is the strongest industry in Hawaii, the state's economy is rather diverse.
Why exhibit there?
Tourism might top the board as the key industry in Hawaii, but with the tropical climate, Hawaii is a producer of many agricultural products including sugar cane production and pineapple production.
Manufacturing is another strong industry concentrated primarily on Oahu Island as are the service industries including hotels, private healthcare, finance, and real estate.
The City & County of Honolulu provides an island-wide bus transportation system that serves Daniel K. Inouye International Airport. Bus numbers 19, 20 and 31 all go to and from the airport.

Key tourist hotspots
Of the 6 main islands, Oahu has Hawaii’s biggest city and capital, Honolulu. And if you’re short of time, you can experience a lot Hawaii has to offer here: the crescent Waikiki Beach, Hawaii’s biggest tourist attraction and Pearl Harbor's WWII memorials.
Pearl Harbor is a National Historic Landmark and active military base that earned its place in history for the 1941 attack, which killed 1,177 servicemen on the USS Arizona.
If you have time, visit the Big Island of Hawaii, Volcanoes National Park. It offers a unique, close-up look at an active volcano system where lava seeps from fissures in the earth.
- MW in downtown Honolulu is a stylish restaurant serving contemporary fusion cuisine.
- Town. Locally grown ingredients and Hawaiian canoe crops shine on the menu of this farm-to-table restaurant.
- Local currency - US dollar.
- Language - English.
- Visa requirements. You will require a visa to enter the USA. What kind that is depends on where you have come from and what you are planning on doing there. The first step you have to take in order to start your US visa application, is to figure out under what kind of visa you are permitted to enter the United States. After you have selected the visa type you need to apply for, you should check the requirements and start gathering the documents that are required for that visa.
- Plug sockets in the USA are the standard two pin plugs.
- Cultural sensitivities. The USA is a real patchwork of cultures, identities and customs, however there aren’t any real cultural sensitivities to be aware of, but points worth noting:
- Most Americans move to a first name basis pretty quickly.
- Americans have no etiquette when it comes to giving and receiving business cards.
- Arrive on time for meetings as time and punctuality are very important to Americans.
- Use statistics to backup your claims - most Americans are impressed by hard data and evidence.
