Golf Tournament: Stroke Play & Scramble

Attention golfers! The 2020 Blue Ribbon Conference includes two golf tournaments – Golf Scramble (Captain’s Choice) at the Mauna Lani golf links, and a Stroke Play Tournament at the Hapuna Golf Course. Both courses are sure to be engaging for players of any skill level.

Open Tennis Play

Tennis enthusiasts have the opportunity to network while playing in two open tennis events Monday and Wednesday at the Mauna Lani hard tennis courts. Private and group lessons by a professional tennis instructor are also available.

Final Night Reception & Dinner

Capping off the 2020 Blue Ribbon Conference, the Final Night Reception and Luau Dinner provides you with yet another opportunity to expand your networking reach and build new business relationships.  Come get your “Hula” on and join us as we welcome Tahiti Production’s Luau Show and experience cultural performances from Hawaii and greater Polynesia including music, dance (hula), and stories.  It's also an opportunity to say goodbye to old & new friends until next year.

Company Sponsor Events

Networking with senior company officials is a key component of the Blue Ribbon Conference experience. Thursday's schedule has been left open for sponsor companies to network, as well as host special events and outings. Check directly with the individual companies for times and locations.
