What’s it Going to Take? Managing Tourism in Hawaiʻi

Air date: Thurs., May 28, 8:00 pm


This week’s INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI is a special edition, expanded to 90 minutes, asking What’s it Going to Take? Managing Tourism in Hawaiʻi. The tourism industry is one of the State’s largest employers and has been the driving force of our economy. But there are costs to the arrival of more than 10 million visitors each year, including overcrowded beaches, traffic and the wear and tear on natural treasures. The coronavirus pandemic is now crippling the visitor industry. This could be a rare opportunity to reshape the future of tourism in Hawaiʻi. You can join the conversation by phoning in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
