Chemical conference to be hosted in Honolulu in 2015

By Associated Press


The largest chemical conference in the Asia-Pacific region is returning to the Hawai'i Convention Center in 2015. 

The convention center announced Wednesday it will host the seventh International Chemical Congress of the Pacific Basin Societies. At its last meeting in 2010 at the convention center, more than 12,500 people attended. 

The event has been held in Honolulu nearly every five years since its founding in 1984. 

Hawaii Tourism Authority President and Chief Executive Officer Mike McCartney says Hawaii's strategic location in the Pacific makes the convention center an ideal location for the event.
