The inaugural International MoonBase Summit (IMS) will be held on the Kohala Coast on Hawaii’s Big Island. Offering an abundance of natural beauty (encompassing 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones), Hawaii’s Big Island boasts a land mass of nearly twice the size of all other Hawaiian Islands combined, but is home to only a small fraction of the state’s population. The extraordinary diversity of the Island includes green and black sand beaches, lush rainforests, waterfalls and two active volcanoes within Volcanoes National Park.

The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows will serve as the headquarters for the IMS 2017 meeting. Conveniently located near the Kona International Airport, the hotel is located approximately 23 miles, or 30 minutes, north of the Kona International Airport Room Rates: The IMS organizers have arranged for discounted room rates at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows.
