The Ironman Sports Medicine Conference is held at the Royal Kona Resort on the Big Island (called Hawaii) often referred to as KONA. The main town is called Kailua-Kona.
The closest airport is KOA (Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keāhole) only 8 miles to Kailua-Kona Town.
Another airport on the other side of the island is The Hilo International Airport (ITO) . We do not recommend using this airport as it is 76 miles ( about 1.45 hours) to Kailua-Kona.
