Business Travel Reverses a 5 Year Downturn / Las Vegas Plays it's Part!

Friday, February 11th, 2005

The nation’s business travel sector last year reversed a five-year downturn with 5.7% growth according to a Washington-based trade group. The Travel Industry Association of America said 38.3 million U.S. adults took one or more business trips of at least 50 miles in 2004. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority announced this week that the local convention industry in Las Vegas attracted a record 5.7 million visitors in 2004. Obviously, Las Vegas played its part in helping to reverse the nation-wide downturn in business travel. In fact, business travel is an integral part of the Las Vegas economy. It’s a critical supplement that keeps rooms filled and casinos humming during the weekdays. A local economy that runs at this pace supports a residential housing market that continues to grow and strengthen.
