Las Vegas is celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) from May 7 to May 13. This week-long event, organized by the U.S. Travel Association, marks the 40th anniversary of recognizing the positive impacts that travel and tourism have on communities.

The event also provides an opportunity to show gratitude towards the 230,000 local hospitality workers who work tirelessly to ensure the 39 million annual visitors have an unforgettable Las Vegas experience.

To celebrate the occasion, Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo has declared this week National Travel & Tourism Week in Nevada with a proclamation recognizing the significant impact of tourism on Nevada’s economy, development, and workforce.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) is also celebrating NTTW with a full-page ad thanking the landbased casinos and hotels employees who work hard to make Las Vegas the most exciting destination on earth. The print ad will run in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Additionally, a 15-second radio spot will air throughout the week on both local English and Spanish stations.

The tourism industry powers Southern Nevada’s economy, from resorts that invest in developing and maintaining one-of-a-kind venues and experiences to visitors in Las Vegas. Tourism helped Southern Nevada’s economy thrive, with visitor spending last year hitting an all-time high of $44.9 billion, far exceeding pre-pandemic levels. This spending ripples through the economy of thousands of local suppliers and vendors, and by hospitality workers spending their income on goods and services in the community.

Southern Nevada’s tourism industry remained the largest regional employer in 2022, accounting for over 358,000 jobs when considering hospitality jobs and jobs indirectly associated with the industry, such as suppliers and vendors. This represents a 21 percent increase from the previous year.

Las Vegas is set to welcome visitors with a stellar lineup of new tourism offerings and events this year and beyond. The investments, such as Fontainebleau, Durango Station, and MSG Sphere, together with Formula 1’s inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix and Super Bowl LVIII, will continue to drive visitors to Las Vegas. The outstanding hospitality and service of the city will further strengthen tourism, making the community even stronger.

In conclusion, the National Travel and Tourism Week is a time to acknowledge and appreciate the positive impact that travel and tourism have on the economy, workforce, and communities. Las Vegas, with its robust tourism industry, is set to welcome visitors and continue contributing to the community's growth and sustainability.
