March 2023 Chairman’s Message

Aloha to our Hawaii Restaurant Association community,

Please mark March 22nd and 23rd in your calendar and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s Hawaii Hotel and Restaurant Show (HHRS). You will be presented with the next frontier of Hawaii’s hotel and food industries. Please come and enjoy the many local, national, and global exhibitors who are thrilled to see and introduce you to all of their incredible products and services geared to save you time and money, and to ultimately maximize your guest experience. Don’t miss out on informative seminars and creative demonstrations catered to help you navigate through the ever-changing market, especially within the last three years.

For the HHRS, the Hawaii Restaurant Association is proud to partner with the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association and the Honolulu Star Advertiser’s Star Events. The collaboration between the trade associations of Hawaii’s two major industries and Hawaii’s major media provider the Star-Advertiser is vital for the food industry especially as we all emerge from the global pandemic. A special thank you to our truly remarkable sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, planning committee, and the many contributors and volunteers who are helping to make this year’s show a success.

Please let any of us know how we can help you take full advantage of the show and its many intricacies so the Hawaii Hotel & Restaurant Show can be as meaningful as possible for you and your organization.


Ryan Tanaka
