The Hawaii Education and STEAM Conference promotes an academia well versed in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math and Education which is a key portion of the public education agenda of the United States. The conference intends to stimulate competitiveness and our nation’s future economic prosperity through encouraging and inspiring more of our best and brightest academics in the study of Education and STEAM fields.

O'ahu is the Jewel and the Heart of the Hawaiian Islands.
Many successful Educational and Business conferences are held in Honolulu’s hotels and the new Honolulu Hawaii Convention Center. This gathering place serves as a platform for academicians, researchers and professionals worldwide.
