The first-ever event featured business people from every island as well as several Hawaiian goods.
Sen. Mazie Hirono says it was a way for Hawaii to be recognized for more than its tourism and military and featured one of her island favorites.
"By the way, one thing I requested was spam musubi and it's here!" said Hirono.
Hirono says she hopes the exposure continues after the event and starts a conversation about Hawaii products.
