Hawaii Imin International Conference Center


1777 East-West Road


The East-West Center, primarily known for its role in promoting understanding among the nations of Asia, the Pacific and the United States since its establishment in 1960, also welcomes conferences, meetings and workshops by other non-profit organizations.


The Center's 21-acre campus is ideally situated in a lush, quiet area adjacent to the University of Hawaii's Manoa campus. It is convenient to all of Honolulu's resources, yet feels a world away from the bustle of Waikiki and downtown.

The Hawaii Imin International Conference Center; designed by the prominent architect I. M. Pei; focuses on local, national and international audiences, and offers outstanding resources to produce successful events of all kinds. Because the East-West Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit education and research institution, the Center can make its facilities available at a reasonable cost to eligible applicants. 

With 12 meeting rooms, a large auditorium , a business center and spacious lānai, the Center offers more than 17,000 sq. ft. of conference space to accommodate groups requiring conference, reception, banquet and workshop facilities.
