Las Vegas stands strong in AKL

Las Vegas stands strong in AKL

Las Vegas and Nevada suppliers hosted Auckland travel trade to a function last night as the destination continues to recover from the tragic shootings about a fortnight ago.

The message was that the city is determined not to let the event change what it has to offer New Zealanders in terms of a holiday experience.

Several suppliers emphasised that New Zealanders should continue to visit Las Vegas and then spend time exploring the state beyond.

'We're promoting the state and national parks, the canyons, the lakes and the other recreational opportunities,' says David Lusvardi, of Travel Nevada.

'There is plenty to do off the strip but nearby. Red Rock Canyon is 30 minutes away and Valley of Fire State Park is an hour away.'
