Visitor traffic down 70.5% in Las Vegas during June

Visitor traffic across Las Vegas fell 70.5% to 1.06 million (3.6m in 2019) in June, following the steady reopening of many casino properties earlier this month. June occupancy figures are based on a weighted average of approximately 95,000 hotel rooms that were available to book during the month as many resorts began welcoming guests back in time.

Nevada-based companies suspended operations on March 17 following Governor Steve Sisolak‘s compulsory order, before being permitted to reopen on June 4 on the introduction of health and safety protocols and precautions to protect employees and visitors to resume service.

Throughout the month, the saw properties implement varying limited capacities, mandatory limits on group sizes and no observable attendance by convention possible.

The monthly executive summary, compiled and distributed by the Research Center of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), reflects the tourism data from several agencies including the LVCVA, McCarran International Airport, the Nevada Gaming Control Board and the NV Transportation Department.

June occupancy figures are based on a weighted average of approximately 95,000 hotel rooms that were available to book during the month as many resorts began welcoming guests back in time.

The overall daily occupancy was 40.9%, the weekend occupancy was 51.8% and the midweek occupancy was 36.5%. Average daily rates for open properties were US$104.07 (down 13.6%) while RevPAR was US$42.56, down 61.5% from last June.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported last month that it had carried out more than 10,135 statewide inspections and findings and opened 156 regulatory proceedings against gaming establishments since reopening began.

For those cases which the authority has received, the board states that it has lodged three formal charges with the Nevada Gaming Commission against licensees.
