Las Vegas Breaks Tourism Record


Forty-two million and counting.

Las Vegas continued its historic visitation growth, setting another new record by surpassing 42 million visitors for the first time in 2015. This breaks 2014’s record of 41.1 million, which was the first time the destination had ever topped 40 million.

Boosted by several new non-stop flights, increased convention attendance and several other factors, Las Vegas officials expect to surpass the 42 million mark by the end of 2016.

Tourism is the lifeblood of the Southern Nevada economy and the Las Vegas Valley generating more than US$50 billion annually and supporting 366,000 local jobs, which represents 43% of employment within Clark County.
