Why plans to bring the Miss USA pageant to Honolulu may have failed

HONOLULU (KHON2) - The Miss USA pageant organizers had planned on holding the competition on Oahu this year, but instead the pageant is heading to Reno, Nevada.
It's been 20 years since a major pageant took place in Hawaii. Back in 1998, Miss Universe was held at the Stan Sheriff Center.

It was estimated to generate more than $9 million dollars for Hawaii's economy.

Alicia Michioka, executive director for the Miss Hawaii USA pageant thinks the same thing could have happened if the Miss USA pageant was held here.

"It's exposure to our state around the world, not just nationally but globally," said Michioka. "It also puts the state of Hawaii on the map in terms of the huge fan base of pageant followers worldwide."

In a statement, the Hawaii Tourism Authority said:
"We recently received a proposal to bring the Miss USA event to Honolulu this May. After a thorough review, we advised the organization that HTA would not be able to provide the funding being requested this year.
