Las Vegas experiences tourist boom

Vicky Karantzavelou - 27 February 2013, 11:54

Whether this increase has been a result of the 'Prince Harry effect', its starring role in the comedy film The Hangover or the great value holidays available, Las Vegas is set to soar even higher in 2013.

Las Vegas numbers are soaring, attracting a record 39.7 million visitors in 2012. Approximately half a million more tourists visited the world renowned Sin City last year, than in the previous record setting year of 2007, according to new figures released by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

Whether this increase has been a result of the 'Prince Harry effect', its starring role in the comedy film The Hangover or the great value holidays available, Las Vegas is set to soar even higher in 2013. 'With more than $2 billion of reinvestment in the destination, Las Vegas is well positioned for continued growth in 2013 and on the threshold of hosting more than 40 million visitors,' said Rossi Ralenkotter, CEO of the LVCVA.

Following a successful 2012, Trailfinders has seen a 20% increase in holidays to Vegas so far this year. Lucy Balding, Marketing Executive at Trailfinders comments, "Vegas has long been a top selling destination for Trailfinders - travellers are drawn to the incredible value hotels, close proximity to the Grand Canyon and a huge choice of world-class shows, eateries and casinos."
