March marked the third straight month of increased visitor volume in Southern Nevada, setting a new record for the highest total ever recorded in one month. According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, 3.7 million people visited in March, a 4.3 percent increase from a year earlier. The past quarter as a whole saw a reported 10.2 million visitors.
The Authority's president and CEO suspects that 2014 will be the year in which we break the 40 million visitors mark. With new resorts and attractions opening this year, the possibility looks promising. The local economy is booming with energy and excitement for new things to come, which will continue to drive demand and visitation for people seeking unique experiences found only in Las Vegas.
