Las Vegas was visited by more than 3.33 million people, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) has revealed that more than 3.33 million people visited Las Vegas, Nevada, in March. That’s an increase of nearly 50 per cent from 2.2 million in March 2021 and just 10 per cent below pre-pandemic numbers.

The strong visitor volume was largely due to the return of large conventions and shows. Exhibition attendance totalled 494,200, a rise of 1,500 per cent year-on-year. The market’s 150,692 hotel rooms were occupied at a rate of 80.6 per cent, up 25 per cent from 2021.

In January, the number of visitors remained 27 per cent below the same month in 2019 and February remained down 18 per cent against 2019.
