    Las Vegas Advisor Poll Results: 93% No 7% Yes

    Analysis from LVA:

    Obviously, the travel plans for an overwhelming majority of Vegasphiles haven't been disrupted by the mass shootings in October.

    However, you'll see in tomorrow's Question of the Day, which concerns visitation statistics since the shootings, that October saw a 4.2% drop-off in visitation year over year. As Las Vegas is now on a pace to hit 42 million or so visitors in 2017, the 7% of respondents who will definitely not be visiting Las Vegas due to the events of October 1 represent nearly three million less visitors, which would drop 2017's total down to 2013's visitation, the lowest in four years. We consider that significant.

    So do the large casino corporations, which, based on cancellations, are seeing lower revenues (again, you can read all about it tomorrow).

    This is one of the more salient and poignant polls we've conducted recently and we deeply appreciate the votes and comments from everyone who participated.

    YTD leisure visitor volume and total room night occupancy was likely already down compared with similar timeframe in 2016. IMO, it's way too early to make any meaningful predictions on what might happen long(er) term.

    really? the shooting might have caused some people to cancel those reservations the month or so after, but I think vegas is just not bringing in the numbers due to so much competition in every state. Casinos are prolific these days. They pop up everywhere, and are becoming more abundant to the heavily populated areas of the big cities.

    Ive been getting lots of offers lately, today for example, march of 2018 gvr sent me offers for rooms ranging from 50-100 dollars.
    When I tried to get into there, they wanted 250-300 a night. plus fees.
    east coast casinos are offering many comped rooms, free play, match play, comped food, anything to get us in and Im sure another 10 thousand customers.

    all this has to be hurting sin city.

    You cannot live your life in fear. People die in car accidents everyday. You still drive a car or take public transportation. Live life with no fear. There are just too many places to gamble & competition for customers are heating up. In a few months AC is getting the Hard Rock & Ocean. More competition to the existing AC market & surrounding areas like Philly, Connecticut & NY
