Mary Charles & Associates (MC&A), a Honolulu-based destination management company, has entered a joint venture with Convention Management Resources, a housing, registration, and travel services company based in San Francisco.

The new entity, Hawaii Convention Connection (HCC), will provide full-service housing, registration, travel, and destination management services to corp- orate meeting planners, incentive and travel companies, and convention, association, and tradeshow organizations. HCC will also organize pre- and post-convention packages to Waikiki and Neighbor Islands-not just for Hawaii meetings and conventions, but as add-ons to West Coast meetings as well. HCC is based in Honolulu.
