Barbados has been seeing a steady increase both in the number of visitors who come to the island and how much they are spending.
This is according to Chief Executive Officer of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc, Billy Griffith.
He was giving a report on the industry's performance at the state of the industry conference hosted by the Caribbean Tourism Organisation which is running over the next few days in the Bahamas.
Mr Griffith has attributed the increased numbers to more rooms being added as well as additional flights to the island.
Mr Griffith is also encouraged by an increase in the amount visitors are spending.
