The Las Vegas trade show industry is showing growth during the first part of 2016.

Through May 2016, more than three million visitors traveled to Las Vegas to attend a meeting or convention. That’s a 12.1 percent increase over the same time last year.

In 2015, Las Vegas maintained its long-standing reputation as the leading destination for business travel as it was named the No. 1 trade show destination for the 22nd consecutive year, according to the Trade Show News Network’s “2015 TSNN Top 250 Trade Shows in the United States” list.
