Hawaii Tourism Association reaches out to potential travelers from Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia has a growing outbound tourism market. Average spending of Saudi tourists overseas are among the highest in the world, and Saudi travelers tend to travel in large family groups. See: http://tsdb.mas.gov.sa/homepage/english/images/engmaspdf.pdf
“HITA membership will definitely help in creating demand to Hawaii. The last ten years have recorded excellent growth in outgoing travel from Saudi. We are keen to introduce Hawaii as a brand new tourist destination in 2012. Through a proper media campaign and with support from HITA, I am sure we can do it,” Mr. Hassan said.
The President of HiTA, Juergen T. Steinmetz, said: “ I have known Mohammad for many years and saw him and his company exhibit at trade shows in the Middle East. I am very excited HiTA can be a player to open this market for our state.”
