Nevada tourism industryNevada is displaying its state-wide tourism industry before business representatives from around the world, and not only the world-famous attractions of Las Vegas.

 
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval addressed the dozens of tourism industry representatives who assembled in Las Vegas yesterday for the 2017 Governor’s Global Tourism Summit.

 
He told attendees of the two-day conference that the state’s tourism industry in 2016 was on pace with pre-recession rates, with increases in spending, employment and travel-generated tax revenue. He said that last year direct travel spending increased by 2.2 percent.

 
Tourism constitutes one of the strongest points of Nevada’s economy. It accounts for almost one-third of the state’s general fund tax revenue. The governor also introduced the audience to three new attractions, including a state park that will open over the next several months.
