2015 Hawaiʻi Conservation Conference Exhibitor Information

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 * University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo

The 2015 Hawai`i Conservation Conference invites conservation organizations, local community artisans and vendors to celebrate the vast network of Hawai`i Island organizations, groups and communities that contributes to the preservation of this special place. Exhibit space will be available for one day only on Wednesday, August 5th, for this unique opportunity to celebrate our island home, Hawai`i. In addition to conference concurrent sessions, the “2015 HCC Community Day” will include late afternoon sessions open to the public, community presentations, live music and a poster reception. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to connect with over 800 conference attendees and community members as they enjoy presentations, booths, and music into the evening.

The conference theme, Hanohano Hawai`i Kuauli: Celebrating Collaboration and Wisdom Across Hawai`i’s Ecosystems highlights how the people and resources of Hawai`i exist in a reciprocal relationship. Each of us depends on the resources provided to us by our islands to survive and, in turn, our actions affect the health of our ʻāina. The preservation of our natural places and native ecosystems is paramount to the health of our state. Every person in Hawaiʻi, whether resident or visitor, kamaʻāina or malihini, bears the responsibility to care for this homeland as this homeland cares for them.

Exhibits should be developed to represent the conference theme and provide community engagement opportunities including interactive displays, educational activities, and local crafts, or products for sale.
