Hawaii Visitor Spend on the Rise
Visitor expenditures in Hawaii rose 1.8 percent ($19.1 million), to $1.1 billion in April 2013, compared with the same month in 2012, according to preliminary statistics by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA). In the first four months of 2013, total visitor expenditures grew 6.3 percent to $5 billion.
The HTA attributed this growth to a rise in the number of arrivals, which totaled 666,959 in April and 2.8 million in the first four months of this year — increases of 3.1 percent and 6.1 percent year over year, respectively. The average daily spending was virtually unchanged at $191 per person.
