Due to ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, HEC2022 is asking all presenters, audience and guests to observe social distancing and remain vigilant in regards to health safety, even if you have been vaccinated.

In order to safely hold this event, HEC2022 will not have a welcome reception nor serve food or beverages. On a plus note, these safety measures have helped reduce the cost of holding HEC2022, which is reflected in the reduction of the registration fee.

All sessions and events will be held at the Hawai‘i Convention Center. The Hawaii Convention Center fronts Kalakaua Avenue, the boulevard anchoring Honolulu’s shopping, dining and entertainment scene. It’s adjacent to Waikiki, Oahu’s iconic resort area with 30,000 hotel rooms and a divine, crescent-shaped beach. In the other direction is the capital city’s downtown area and some of Hawaii’s top attractions. The Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) is a mere eight-mile drive.
