Dress Code

The local business attire in Hawaii is “aloha wear,” which is Hawaii’s version of business casual. It is not customary to wear suit and tie in Hawaii due to the temperate tropical climate so please feel free to wear aloha wear or standard business casual attire. Conference rooms will be air-conditioned so you may want to bring a light jacket.

For men, aloha attire means a short sleeve printed aloha shirt (printed Hawaiian shirt) with slacks. For women, the same or dresses, skirts and blouses in tropical prints.  See photo below.

For the Tuesday luau, we encourage you to wear casual aloha wear. This means a more relaxed version of your business aloha wear. Brighter colors and prints, untucked shirts, open-toe sandals, sneakers, jeans, and shorts are all ok. The luau will be outdoors and may require walking in unpaved grassy areas. You may want to wear flat comfortable shoes. Although it’s unlikely to rain in June, the luau is held rain or shine.
