George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement commenting on Hawaii’s visitor statistics results for 2017.

“What tourism generated for Hawaii in 2017, highlighted by record totals in the five major categories that convey the industry’s importance to residents and the state’s economy, is rewarding and should not be taken for granted. It’s especially heartening that tourism is supporting 204,000 jobs in Hawaii, knowing how the industry’s success helps families, businesses and communities statewide.
“We are grateful for the efforts of Hawaii’s tourism industry partners to constantly improve their facilities and product offerings, and the outstanding service that our tourism professionals provide to visitors coming from around the world. HTA’s marketing programs drive travel demand for Hawaii, but it’s the warmth and aloha of our people throughout the islands that keep them coming back.
“We are hopeful of sustaining tourism’s momentum in 2018 for the benefit of Hawaii’s families and the state’s economy. HTA’s Global Marketing Team is communicating with travel industry partners in Hawaii’s source markets on a continual basis to maintain travelers’ confidence in the booking of trips to the Hawaiian Islands. Our message to global travelers continues to be that Hawaii is the safest, cleanest and most welcoming destination in the world.”
