LV Had Record 41.1 Visitors Last Year

A record 41.1 million visitors descended on Las Vegas last year.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority confirmed Friday what it had already been anticipating: 41.1 million visitors, up 3.7 percent from 39.7 million in 2013, stayed overnight at the destination in 2014. The total visitor volume is the most the destination has ever seen in one year.

Of those, 5.2 million visitors attended one or more of the 22,103 conventions held last year. Both figures are up compared with the year prior.

The agency says 3.1 million visitors came to Sin City in December, up 5.5 percent. Conventions held and meeting attendance dropped in December, as did the average daily rate and revenue per available room in downtown Las Vegas properties.
