Las Vegas welcomes a record 40 million visitors in 2014

Las Vegas reached a historic milestone in 2014, exceeding 40 million visitors for the first time.  

The tourism industry in Southern Nevada continues to expand, achieving ten consecutive months of visitor volume increases, with many of those months being the best on record, said the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. The “Entertainment Capital of the World” has surpassed its record for annual visitation, drawing more than 40 million people with two weeks remaining of the calendar year. Current pacing suggests the destination could approach nearly 41 million visitors by the end of the year.  The previous record was set in 2012 with more than 39,727,000 tourists.   Las Vegas has seen an increase in direct international air service in 2014 with Canada and Mexico proving to be instrumental to visitation growth, said a release from the LVCVA. To celebrate the 40 million visitor milestone, the destination created a series of priceless ‘Only in Vegas’ experiences and surprised unsuspecting visitors with Las Vegas entertainers, including Penn and Teller, Carrot Top and Claire Sinclair, presenting the one-of-a-kind experiences.
