Vegas Does It Again-A Record Breaker
This city is astounding. It is always pushing the envelope, reinventing itself, and breaking records. This new record underscores and confirms that all the other luring features, come-ons, and attractions of Las Vegas are working and working well.
In 2015, for the first time in its history, Las Vegas received, with open arms I might add, over 42,000,000 visitors. The trend is definitely upward still. It was just last year that Vegas surpassed the 40,000,000 mark, that’s a 5% increase just this year.
There are multiple reasons for this continued growth and interest in Las Vegas. There are the new properties over recent years, more non-stop flights in and out of the area, and more convention space. Conventions are a major draw to Vegas. On average there are over 22,000 conventions per year drawing over 5,000,000 people. So, about 12% of visitors come to attend or be part of a convention.
Happy New Year Las Vegas. Keep up the good work.
