30K fewer visitors visited Las Vegas in June

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas welcomed nearly 30,000 fewer visitors in June 2013 than in the same month a year before, the city's tourism bureau reported Friday.

According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, 3,363,895 visitors were tallied this past June. The total translated into nine-tenths of a percent drop from the number in June 2012.

LVCVA cited one less weekend day from the previous June, and a slightly lower room inventory for the drop.

Despite the down number, June 2013 was home to 4.6 percent more conventions in the city and half-percent jump in convention attendance.

June was noted for Las Vegas hosting the three-night Electric Daisy Carnival, which organizers estimated 100,000 people attended for each night.

The visitor figures were released on the same day the Nevada Gaming Control Board reported a 4.8 percent decline in the June's gaming revenue for Clark County.

The Las Vegas Strip took a 10 percent hit in the gaming win in the same month, as well. Downtown Las Vegas fared well, with a nine percent jump from the same month in 2012.
