Superman saves the world from evil. Batman saves Gotham City from the Joker, Mr. Freeze, and The Penguin. The X-Men team uses their powers for the benefit of humanity.
Comic-book superheroes have been around for decades, deeply rooted into our popular culture as saviors from the dangers of this world. Although completely fictional, it’s easy to fantasize that these characters are real, saving us from all things evil.
Now take away the cape, supernatural powers, and monster villains, and we’ve got our own real-life superheroes! Members of the law enforcement communities fight crime and strive daily to keep our world safe from evil. Although not the kind of ‘evil’ you would see in comic books, these heroes face tremendous danger, death, and despair. We need to show support and praise those who selflessly risk their lives for humankind.
To help support the law enforcement systems and members worldwide, the International Conference on Asian Organized Crime and Terrorism (ICAOCT) was created to provide a vehicle for these members to connect more on a professional and fraternal level. Hosted by the International Organization of Asian Crime and Investigators Specialists (IOACIS), ICAOCT holds training and networking conferences to give these members the opportunity to create relationships worldwide built on a foundation of common accomplishments, skills, experiences, and choice of career.
On April 17-19th, ICAOCT held their 9th International Conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii. Proudly sponsored by Hite Beer and Jinro Soju, over 400 exclusive guests and members attended the networking conference and award dinner, where they were recognized for their honorable and heroic accomplishments. To help loosen up the vibe and create a welcoming and relaxed environment, Hite Jinro set up alcohol bars, giving the conference a casual and social atmosphere. Hite Jinro provided the drinks and held a tasting event with their very own Hite Jinro squad – Hite Beer, Jinro Soju, Bok Bun Ja (Rasberry) Wine, and Jinro original cocktails: Jinro on the Rocks and Kor Royale.
The conference featured topics related to Asian gangs, organized crime, and terrorism. Criminal Investigators and Specialists from all over the world had the opportunity to not only share information with others, but to also gain the knowledge from world renowned experts in their field.
This is Hite Jinro’s 4th sponsorship involvement, continually showing full support for those combating Asian Crime and Terrorism, and law enforcement communities.
Cheers to our superheroes.
