luau party

As we move SWTest closer to the coast in Carlsbad, we feel the pull of the Polynesian Islands. So grab your Hawaiian shirt and get ready for a Luau!

This year’s Tuesday Evening Social Event will take us to the Polynesian Islands with Lei Greeters, Tropical Cocktails, a delicious Luau Buffet Dinner and Entertainment by the Pride of Polynesia drummers, dancers and fire performer. We’ll also have a Hawaiian Shirt Contest for 1) the most colorful shirt and 2) the most authentic shirt. So don’t forget to pack your Hawaiian shirt!

The Social Cocktail Hour will also feature a “Keynote Meet & Greet”, where our two Keynote Speakers, John Yi, and Rebeca Jimenez will be there to say hello, chat, and answer questions in an informal setting. The Cocktail Hour will be held in the Costa Del Sol Porte Cochere and Breezeway from 6-7 PM. Immediately following, the Luau Dinner Buffet will be held on the Costa de la Luna Lawn from 7-8 PM. Listen for the conch shell horn and drums to call you to dinner.

After dinner, we’ll announce the winners in this year’s golf tournament, which hosts over 30 teams and 130+ players this year. Then the Pride of Polynesia will take us on a journey through the islands with authentic music and dances from four of the major Polynesian Islands, French Polynesia (Tahiti), Hawaii, Samoa and Aotearoa (New Zealand). And, last but not least, we’ll announce the winners of the EXPO Scavenger Hunt. Then, off to the sponsor hospitality events to continue the evening of fun!

You don’t want to miss this long awaited opportunity to socialize and network with your industry friends and colleagues, not to mention soaking up the ambiance of the Polynesian Islands.
