by Calculated Risk on 7/29/2021 02:44:00 PM

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

Marking the sixth consecutive month of MoM gains, June saw the destination host more than 2.9 million visitors, +3.2% MoM and down ‐17.6% vs. June 2019.

While convention and group data continue to be gathered, the return of several conventions including World of Concrete, Surfaces, Nightclub & Bar and the Int'l Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference helped support midweek business.

Hotel occupancy continued to improve, reaching 75.9% (up 5.0 pts MoM, down ‐15.8 pts vs. June 2019), as Weekend occupancy neared 90% (89.4%) and Midweek occupancy reached 70.9% (up 8.1 pts MoM, down ‐18.8 pts vs. June 2019.)

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

Visitor traffic was down 17.6% compared to the same month in 2019.

There had been no convention traffic since March 2020, but there were a few conventions in June (data not available yet).

I'll add a graph of convention traffic once convention data is available.

Note: Conventions started again in June, but the data isn't available yet.
