The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has compiled tourism and visitation statistics from October. As one might expect, most indicators are down in the wake of the October 1 incident. Compared to October 2016, visitor volume is down 4.2%, citywide occupancy is down 2.7% and room nights fell by 4%. As noted previously on our blog, the Strip saw a 6% dip in gaming revenue, which drove the county to see a slight loss as well.
It was not all bad news, though. McCarran passenger volume was up 1.5% and hit a new record, conventions held was essentially flat and convention attendance was up 35.9% – driven in part by several shows rotating back to Las Vegas.
