State of the Tourism Industry 2016

The State of the Tourism Industry 2016 examines the last ten years of tourism in New Zealand and gives a snapshot of the current state and performance of the tourism industry. 

Published in November 2016, the report also presents the results of a New Zealand-wide survey of businesses and organisations associated with tourism, which explored tourism industry challenges, opportunities and sustainability. 

After seasonality, the challenges reported by survey respondents as being the most significant for the industry were lack of investment in infrastructure, achieving ongoing sustainability, environmental concerns, satisfying demand for public facilities and amenities and increasing regulatory demands and compliance costs.

Other challenges of note were limited regional dispersa, maximising domestic tourism potential and staff and skill shortages.

The report is the sixth in an annual series produced by the Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) and Lincoln University.
