What are the best online tools to attract tourists to Hawaii? What attracts the Chinese visitor? Yvonne Gu is an unusual blend: a Chinese millenial, online expert, and educated in the Native Hawaiian host culture (on Maui) and a leading hospitality management program — as well as doing sales, marketing, and PR for top Chinese hotels, including the Shanghai Grand Hyatt Hotel. What better person to discuss global tourism, Web and mobile apps, and Hawaii as a tourist destination? Yvonne is currently Online Sales and Marketing Manager at Kaanapali Beach Hotel (historically, the first hotel that launched Native Hawaiian host culture programs for its employees), and has a Master’s in Hotel and Hospitality Management from Cornell University, UH Maui College hospitality courses, and a Bachelor’s in Tourism and Travel Services Management from Shanghai Normal University.
