Las Vegas.- 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 Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, LVCVA.
Economists say that many reasons are behind the soaring numbers and mention the ‘Prince Harry effect’, the city’s starring role in the comedy film The Hangover and the great value holidays available.
“Vegas has long been a top selling destination for Trailfinders. Travelers are drawn to the incredible value hotels, close proximity to the Grand Canyon and a huge choice of world-class shows, eateries and casinos”, said Lucy Balding, Marketing Executive at Trailfinders. The tour operator has seen a 20 percent increase in holidays to Vegas so far this year.
In 2012, the Sin City attracted a record 39.7 million visitors. Last year, there was a half a million tourist increase.
