Hawaii Hotels to Offer Chinese Language Programming

The HTA is committed to working with our industry partners to extend our aloha to the growing China market. Currently, there are limited Chinese language resources available to Chinese speaking visitors in Hawaii. To begin to address this issue, China Television (CHTV), with assistance from the HTA, developed a Chinese language welcome video that will be shown on the new CHTV Hotel Channel beginning July 1, 2011.
The nearly two minute-long video features HTA’s Mike McCartney welcoming Chinese visitors to Hawaii, acknowledging Hawaii’s and China’s shared cultural history. CHTV programming will include hourly news feeds from the two largest Chinese language news sources in China – CCTV and Phoenix – as well Chinese language information provided by the HTA and each of the four island visitors’ bureaus. The CHTV Hotel Channel is free to hotel guests and free to hotels with Oceanic cable service.
