Made in Hawaii
Exhibit space is now available for First Hawaiian Bank’s 2004 Made in Hawaii Festival, scheduled for August 20, 21, and 22 at Neal Blaisdell Center.
This year’s festival will spread from the Exhibition Hall to the Arena to accommodate the growing number of booths. Last year’s festival, attended by nearly 36,500 people, featured more than 400.
“We want to encourage businesses, especially those starting out, that manufacture or produce Hawaii-made products to participate, because the festival is one of the best venues to introduce new products,” First Hawaiian Chairman Walter Dods said. “The festival is especially beneficial for exhibitors from the Neighbor Islands.”
Dods said the show also provides a trade preview attended by buyers from Hawai‘i, the mainland and elsewhere who are looking for unique products.
“The festival is an excellent opportunity for companies to expand their wholesale business,” he said.
Exhibit space is available for businesses that feature Hawaii-made products including art, clothing, flowers, produce, food, jewelry, plants, pottery, woodwork, musical instruments, gift items, home accents and furnishings, and more. To qualify as a Hawai‘i-made product, a product must have at least 51 percent of its wholesale value added by manufacture, assembly, fabrication or production within the state.
Standard 10-by-10-foot drapery exhibit booths include one draped table, two chairs, a booth identification sign, and trash can. Rates are $475 for regular booths and $525 for corner booths with an additional $100 charge for those who want to share a booth. A deposit is required by May 21 to reserve a booth. To register, an application can be obtained from the Made in Hawaii Festival website at www.madeinhawaiifestival.com . For information: (808) 533-1292.

Meanwhile, Island Air will add Lihue-Honolulu routes soon, and perhaps a direct flight from the Big Island. Could the increased competion mean cheaper flights? We certainly hope so. But Island Air could not be reached for comment.
