I completely forgot to send a note to you and Roxann about our Maui program.

Hats off to an awesome job. Seamless execution and you were spot-on with recommendations and the “trust us” points too.

 Loved the venue and you guys were instrumental in pulling it off.

Best in class and wish everyone executed as well as you and your team did.

Thanks again,

Share the word and I’ll be sure to look you up when we make it back to Hawaii

I have used Roxann and her team for two very special sales incentive trips to Maui. Roxann understood our audience (high-performing, well-traveled sales executives and their spouses) and put together a sales reward trip that was truly unique and made everyone feel like the entire trip was designed specifically for them. To this day, many of these attendees have said that it is the best trip they have ever taken in their lives.

Liz Bauer

Senior Vice President, Investor Relations & Strategic Communications, CSG Systems

I have never found any reason or desire to find another Destination Management Company in the islands.  Hawaii Meetings have truly partnered with me on all of my programs and events.

Corporate Manager Sales Services - Retired, Hormel Foods

“Roxann and her team at Hawaii Meetings+events are a wonderful group of people to work with. We hosted our annual incentive program on two separate occasions on the island of Maui and worked with HM+e both times. Roxann is extremely dedicated to providing 110%. Her passion and commitment to excellence was very evident from the start. She worked with every one of our sometimes unusual needs and was very willing to provide extremely creative suggestions for every aspect of our program. I highly recommend working with Roxann and Hawaii Meetings+events for all of your destination management needs in Maui. They made my job as a meeting planner very easy. You will not be disappointed with your end result.”
