Maui hail­ing Au/NZ suc­cess

Travel Daily - - News -

MAUI, Hawaii’s sec­ond-largest is­land, is see­ing pos­i­tive re­turns on its key sta­tis­ti­cal met­rics, while ap­plaud­ing the lengthy stays par­taken by Aus­tralians.

Randy Parker, Maui Vis­i­tors Bureau Direc­tor of Sales, In­ter­na­tional & MCI, told Travel Daily in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment, re­turn rate and per per­son per day spend­ing (PPDS) was in a good po­si­tion for the is­land.

“[Maui has] 14 re­sorts on this is­land, and at the end of the first quar­ter, 13 of them will be com­pletely ren­o­vated,” Parker said.

“If you have the in­vest­ment there, the owners are happy, you’re do­ing well, flights are be­ing added and all the things you want in a good mar­ket are hap­pen­ing.

“I think no mat­ter how you look at it, one of the best ways to see if a mar­ket­place is do­ing well is how many ren­o­va­tions are go­ing on & how many owners are in­vest­ing in busi­nesses.”

Pic­tured, Parker throws his arm around close friend, Hawai’i Tourism Ocea­nia Aus­tralia MICE Manger Kris Phadungki­atipong.
