Two Iconic Brands, Two Signature Events

We recently helped two iconic brands celebrate two very different special events in Hawaii – but both with the same attention to detail, level of high-quality service, innovation, and creativity for which our events are known. We were approached by Outrigger Hotels & Resorts to help plan and produce a 70th anniversary to remember. Our visual designer incorporated the hotel …

A Blast from the Past

Diners, carnivals and old-fashioned soda shops came alive at this 1950s inspired shindig. Our Client from Australia hosts an incentive trip for their employees and their families each year. It was previously held in Australia and Vietnam before coming to Hawaiʻi this April, with plans to travel to Fiji in 2019. Our Team loved the challenge of creating custom “Grease” …

Pegasus Takes Flight

Pegasus may be a mythical winged stallion, but every year it comes to life at “Pegasus Night.” This special event for our Client’s Elite Sales Team changes locations each year and was previously held in Athens, the Maldives and Dubai before coming to Hawaii earlier this year. Due to the significance of the evening, our Client asked us to build …

May Day is Lei Day

This year marks the 91st annual celebration of this tradition. However, in Hawaii, lei are used throughout the year for special occasions, such as graduations, weddings and birthdays. Our Team loves to incorporate beautiful lei into our events, as no matter the theme or orientation, lei serve as a symbol of peace and aloha in Hawaii. Whether the lei are …

Maxwell once said, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” For 15 years, Mark Dunkerley served as Hawaiian Airlines’ guiding light on its journey to become one of the world’s most successful airlines.

The altar featured a beautiful table that had special meaning to the couple, paired with stunning bronze columns and orchid floral arrangements on either side to create a simple and elegant look. Following the ceremony, the …

Celebrations of Life

At Current Affairs, we feel very privileged to help our Clients celebrate major milestones and life moments through memorable Events. Recently, this has extended to two Celebrations of Life in remembrance of two community influencers who passed. Celebrations of life can mean many things and be expressed in different ways for different people. As the president & CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society for the past 27 years, Pamela Burns touched the …

Spicing it up with Hawaii Food and Wine Festival

We added a little spice to this year’s Hawaii Food and Wine Festival, helping design one of the Festival’s signature evening Events.
