From the Las Vegas Visitor Authority: May 2021 Las Vegas Visitor Statistics

The upward trajectory of tourism indicators continued in May as the destination welcomed nearly 2.9M visitors, + 11.8% MoM and down roughly -22% vs. May 2019.

Hotel occupancy reached nearly 71%, up 5.3 pts MoM, as Weekend occupancy approached 88%, coming within 8.6 pts of May 2019 levels. Midweek occupancy saw gains as well, reaching 62.8%, up 4.9 pts MoM and down 25.3 pts vs. May 2019.

The first graph shows visitor traffic for 2019 (blue), 2020 (orange) and 2021 (red).

Visitor traffic was down 22.0% compared to the same month in 2019.

Convention traffic was non-existent again in May, and was down 100% compared to May 2019.

There has been no convention traffic since March 2020.  

I'll add a graph of convention traffic once conventions start to reopen.

Note: Conventions started again in June.
