For the first time ever SIOP will hold its annual conference away from the mainland of North America.
The 2014 annual conference will be May 15-17 in Honolulu, Hawaii and promises to be a real treat for SIOP members.
For those planning to be part of the 29th annual event, hotel reservations are now being accepted. The conference hotel is the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
Executive Director David Nershi said room rates are “outstanding and comparable to recent conferences.” Rates begin at $199, which is less than the rate at the 2013 conference headquarters hotel.
To ensure receiving the special rate, members are urged to book their rooms as soon as possible.

The Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is set amid lush tropical gardens, waterfalls and exotic wildlife. All rooms feature stunning views of the resort or ocean and offer high-speed internet access. Conveniently located only three miles from downtown Honolulu and many popular Oahu attractions, conference attendees will have plenty to see and do. Or enjoy some of the resort’s activities including snorkeling, kayaking, surfing, submarine tours and Hawaiian culture and arts. There are some 18 different restaurants, cafes and lounge-bars within the hotel, including the award-winning Bali Steak & Seafood restaurant.
Other hotel features include Waikiki’s white sand beach with its five swimming pools, waterslide and salt water lagoon.
Many great local attractions are just minutes from the hotel including Pearl Harbor and the USS Missouri, where the official surrender was signed to end World War II.
