Hawaii Visitor Arrivals Set All-Time Monthly Record in July 2016 – Visitor Expenditures Gained 1.5 Percent to $1.4 Billion
“It’s inspiring to see the second half of 2016 start with a new all-time record for monthly visitor arrivals. Sustained success in tourism is a team effort. Hawaii’s travel industry partners have been brilliant in consistently meeting the expectations of first-time and repeat visitors, both from the U.S. mainland and internationally. Their collaborative devotion to excellence is the impetus behind Hawaii’s record totals.
“In September we’ll start planning for next year as our industry partners come together at the Hawaii Tourism Conference to collectively address the future of travel for the Hawaiian Islands. A primary focus will be how Hawaii can remain foremost in the minds of global travelers, especially millennials. Everyone in Hawaii benefits from a strong, vibrant tourism industry. We look forward to the plans, insight, ideas, and new initiatives to support our industry’s future at the tourism conference.”
