George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement commenting on Hawaii’s visitor statistics for October 2016.

 “Hawaii’s tourism industry began the fourth quarter with the best October on record, both in visitor arrivals and spending. With the peak holiday travel season upon us, the State of Hawaii is in excellent position to set new yearly records in both categories, as well as generated state tax revenue.

“Since summer began, Hawaii has recorded five straight months of year-over-year increases in visitor spending, but what’s especially notable is that the largest percentage of growth has been achieved in September (10.4%) and October (6.8%).

“Maui, Kauai and the island of Hawaii have benefited most from this surge in fall visitor spending, as they have recorded double-digit increases in visitor spending for each of the past two months.

“The growth in visitor spending continues to strengthen the tax revenue base for the entire state. Hawaii’s tourism industry has produced $1.37 billion in state tax revenue through October, an increase of $52 million over last year. It’s gratifying to know how much tourism is contributing to Hawaii’s economic success and supporting government services that all of our communities need.”
