Meeting Show Aloha Land – probably one of the most festive Christmas events in the world, ever

Imagine Willy Wonka’s factory meets every festive scene from every Christmas movie ever. Then throw in adventure activities, sparkling train rides, spectacular lighting displays, and a whole lot of snow – all nestled away in a sprawling magical wonderland on the island of Hawaiʻi... 

…You’re getting close to picturing the epic Show Aloha Land. There’s more, too. Giant bubble machines, delicious food, human snow globes. The list goes on. In case you were wondering, yes, this fantastical, festive feast of Christmas fun is a huge hit. But the really crazy thing is that it only started in 2020, with the first ever event accruing $500,000 in donations and sponsorship – all of which went to good causes. 

Read on to find out how a charity drive during the pandemic snowballed into one of the most spectacular Christmas events of all time, IOCLHO (in our Christmas-loving honest opinion).

Here, we chat to one of the masterminds behind Show Aloha Land, Aryn Nakaoka, to find out what it’s all about 👇.

We’ve renamed Add-ons to Products (and you’ll want to know why)

Since launching Add-ons back in July, they’ve been hugely popular. Over 600 event creators have sold a whopping 20,455 add-ons, from merchandise to experiences.

We’re in the process of making it possible for you to sell these items whether or not you’re currently running an event. But in doing this it made sense to rename Add-ons to Products.

Keep reading to see what else is coming, as well as five reasons you should be selling Products online alongside event ticketing.
