A Few Words From Customers and Colleagues…
“…I have known and worked with John for over 20 years now and over time I have come to a few indisputable conclusions: John and Hawaii Meetings are all about reliability, trustworthiness, creativity, delivering the service and, above all, working with you on finding solutions, alternatives or, more simply, making it happen. John is in the Hall of Fame in my book…”
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.
John Hendrickson is an industry proven veteran who prides himself on providing outstanding customer service regardless of the difficulty of task. With the “aloha spirit” John and his team consistently delivered quality services to the discerning customers of The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua with genuine smiles. John’s attention to detail and personal involvement ensure the highest return on objective and investment.
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.
