How Much Tourism Is Too Much? with HPR’s Catherine Cruz

Date/Time

Feb 21, 2019
06:30 PM until 08:30 PM

Description

2018 was the seventh straight year of record tourist arrivals to Hawaiʻi. Visitor spending has grown rapidly too, generating historically high tax receipts and new jobs. But as more tourists crowd the islands and slow traffic, it’s time to ask: How much tourism can Hawaiʻi really handle? Should more priority be placed on diversifying the local economy? What effect has catering to tourists had on Hawaiʻi’s culture and environment? And what can Hawaiʻi learn from other popular destinations about how to preserve infrastructure, culture, and identity in the face of mass tourism?

 

Executive director of the Center for Responsible Travel Martha Honey, public policy researcher and former president of the Hawai‘i Economic Association John Knox, cultural tourism specialist and former Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee Peter Apo, and Frank Haas, marketing consultant and former vice president of tourism marketing at the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, visit Zócalo to consider the perils of overtourism for the Aloha State and the world.
