Rebuilding Travel – Learn from Hawaii: 27 July 2020 (Q&A)

Hawaii has been a model in the United States when it comes to dealing with Coronavirus. The Aloha State has the lowest number of COVID-19 infections and the lowest number of death.

On the other hand, the most important industry in the State is Tourism. The island remains closed for tourism and times are challenging.


We talked to Kym Pine, Chair of the Council Committee on Business, Economic Development and Tourism, and candidate for mayor.

We  also talked to Mor Elkeslassy, CEO of Skreen, a high-end thermal camera paired with unique software for contact tracing and temperature taking. It is a contactless system that can assist tourism all over the world in reopening with ease. Mor wants to bring his invention to the world of tourism. 

The world can learn from Hawaii. We will discuss how and how tourism will look in the future.
