Hawaii Dept of Health

In Brief

Since 2005 Grass Shack Events Media has produced The Hawaii Department of Health’s meetings.  It all started when Grass Shack was called in after the Hawaii Department of Health invited representatives from key agencies together to discuss the threat of a human influenza pandemic due to the global spread of avian flu. The wanted to review basic influenza and pandemic facts; discuss potential impacts upon each individual agency; establish central lines of communication and develop tailored educational curriculum and action plans for the different organizations being represented.

Challenge
The Department of Health hired Grass Shack to produce important this large event with very short notice.

Grass Shack Solution
Grass Shack jumped into action. A preliminary invitation was designed and sent out to all attendees. An online registration form was created to assist attendees in registering for the meetings as well as for the workshops. The workshops were placed into rooms that would accommodate the growing number of attendees. Grass Shack handled all reservations along with production for the main general session.

Results
The attendees remarked that they took much more away from the meetings than they had anticipated. The Department Of Health was very pleased with the way Grass Shack was able to coordinate the event on such short notice.
