Commercial Accommodation Monitor (CAM) - September 2017

September guest nights in Northland fell overall compared to 2016, but there was a mixed pattern underneath the topline data. 

For the month international nights grew by 11.2%, while domestic nights declined for the third month in a row, also by 11.2%.  Far North and Whangarei districts both recorded drops compared to 2016, while Kaipara grew in September.
Year ended growth rate for Northland has now slowed to 4.5%, but is still well ahead of the national average 2.6%. Overall across the country, it seems the last few years of ongoing rapid growth is slowing.

Please note: CAM data is released six weeks after the end of the month, while spend data is released approximately three weeks after the end of the month. Release dates of the two data sets rarely completely line up. View the Northland Accommodation Monitor - September 2017  |  Visit Statistics New Zealand
