Tokyo — April 25, 2012 —For the very first time, Japan’s sole public broadcaster, operating the country’s largest national and international television network, is coming to the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC). Today 154 million households spanning 130 countries and regions depend on it. Based on international traveler demand, more than 300,000 hotels rooms across the United States, Asia and Europe already offer it. Independent hotels and global brands looking for the "IT" factor to enhance international travelers' experiences and establish a new competitive market edge should plan to visit NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corp.) and distributor Japan International Broadcasting (JIB) in Booth No. 1231, June 25 to 28 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
"Whether you are an independent hotel or a global brand providing hospitality to travelers from around the world, it's critical that you also deliver news, information and entertainment today's travelers demand in the medium they prefer to receive it," said Jay Campbell, NHK World TV U.S. representative. "As dependency on technology continues to grow, hotels must implement the solutions that are requested most by their guests in order to remain competitive. When 85.2 million households in Europe, 42 million in the Middle East and Africa, 21 million in Asia, 5.3 million in North and South America, and 440,000 in Australia and the South Pacific subscribe to a service, hotels — especially those in large city centers designed for international travelers — cannot afford to ignore the trend."
Hoteliers shopping the world’s premier hotel technology event for enhanced in-room entertainment and HDTV offerings, should visit NHK World in June. To pre-schedule an appointment, email Jay Campbell at or call (201) 666-5131.
