Tourism spending data for October 2018 released

The Monthly Regional Tourism Estimates (MRTE) for October are now available by visiting the MBIE website.

In this release and going forward, the Tourism Bay of Plenty (TBoP) boundaries are changing. Whakatane district will now be included in the TBoP RTO. This change occurred following consultation with TBoP and Whakatane District. Previously the district was included in the category 'not elsewhere classified'

An anomaly has been identified in the Wellington region data. This has been resolved but not in time to be included in the release today. Revised Wellington region data will be made available by 5 December.

The first version of the Quarterly Tourism Report was released earlier this month. The report gives more detail and insight into what's happening in New Zealand's tourism sector. The first version contains two deeper dives on the Chinese market and fuel spending.
