July SPOTLIGHT on Amenities

Updated: Jul 25, 2018

Each month we will shine a light on some of the elements that are involved in making an unforgettable destination experience for guests of Hawai’i. This month we bring you a spotlight on amenities!

Whether it be a teaser (prior to the program), a “Welcome to Hawai’i", a turndown or pillow gift, or a final night gesture, the perfect amenity can provide attendees with a lifetime of unforgettable memories. We are lucky to work with the best companies in the business, and we’d like to share a little bit about some of them, and highlight a few of their favorite items.

Maui Jim Corporate Gifts

Maui Jim Corporate Gifts

Maui Jim Corporate Gift’s main mission is to make the gifting process easy for the planner and memorable for the guest. With over 10,000 executed events under their belt, Maui Jim has learned a lot, and the guests and planners are the ones that benefit from that experience. They pioneered the onsite sunglass experiential gifting concept over 18 years ago, and in that time, they have streamlined the process and continually evolve with new styles, service offerings, and technology. International destinations are not an issue for Maui Jim; they have distribution centers in 16 countries, which saves on your shipping costs. Their scalability allows them to provide an individual experience for groups with as few as 25 people, to create that everlasting memory that will remind your guest of where they got those sunglasses as they wear them throughout the year.

Each hand selected piece of wood is carefully aligned with a specifically chosen image to highlight the unique grain of the wood as well as the composition of the image for a perfect pairing to remind you of your time in Hawai’i.
