In light of the ever-changing travel industry and the increasingly challenging global economic climate, MC&A and Island Partners Hawaii, two of Hawaii’s leading destination and event management companies, have joined forces.

The strategic partnership leverages the strengths of the two organization. The overall goal, according to a statement, is to secure growth and capitalize on opportunities in the global conventions, meetings, incentives, events, and social marketplace.

"With a combined 42 years of service to local, regional, national and international clients, MC&A and Island Partners Hawaii share a philosophy that centers on building life-long customer relationships and a driving commitment to excellence through continuous improvement," the statement said.

Clients will benefit from the shared practices and integration of the teams of destination experts and event design and production professionals. The combined companies have 100 full-time employees throughout the Islands.  In addition, the partners are exploring opportunities to expand their reach and services beyond Hawaii, creating additional value for clients in multiple destinations.

MC&A and Island Partners Hawaii are maintaining their main offices on the Islands of Oahu and Maui, respectively.

“One of the most significant aspects of this integrated partnership,” said MC&A president Chris Resich, “is our people. They are the single asset that will ensure the success of our brands.  Their years of proven experience, their commitment to the very best practices, and their total dedication to client service will continue to fuel our philosophy of continuous improvement."
