Conference Hotel

The room block is sold out as the conference organizers worked with multiple stakeholder groups (distinguished guests, sponsors, AMOS program committee and chairs) prior to releasing the hotel link to the general audience. With increased attention focused on SSA/SDA and AMOS this year, as evidenced by the abstract submissions, coupled with overall demand for lodging on Maui, the contracted block went faster than ever before.

Transportation

Kahului Airport (OGG) is the primary airport on the island of Maui. Maui is served by many leading US airlines and international carriers. In many cases direct flights to OGG are available. Many passengers first arrive at Honolulu International Airport (HNL) and then travel to Maui via an inter-island airline.

There are a number of ways to get to and from Kahului Airport. The airport is accessible by car, shuttle, taxi and public transit.

Rental cars are in high demand, so please plan ahead to secure a reservation first before making the rest of your travel arrangements. Instead of renting a vehicle, consider alternate transportation options including ride share, public transportation and shuttle/taxi services.
