Photovoltaic Specialists Conference

Accommodations During the Conference | Island Hopping Opportunities

I want you to stay at the conference hotel – the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  A primary theme of this conference is enhancing the Photovoltaic Specialist Community.  To this end, we have created a large room block at this one hotel so that we can maintain our community beyond the Technical Sessions and the Exhibition hall in the Convention Center.  The Hilton is a beautiful hotel right on Waikiki Beach, only three blocks from the Convention Center.
