AUG 12, 2015:-Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and McCarran International Airport will be hosting Routes Americas in 2017. Routes Americas is the essential route development event for all aviation-based companies who wish to conduct business to, from, and within the region. The event brings together a range of airlines, airports, and tourism authorities, including some of the largest carriers from North, Central, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Named as North America’s leading meeting and convention destination for 21 consecutive years, Las Vegas hosts more of the leading conventions than any other destination in the United States. Hosting over 22,000 conventions, events and conferences a year and welcoming nearly 5.2 million convention attendees in 2014, Las Vegas is the ideal destination for Routes Americas 2017. In 2013, Las Vegas was the first US city to host World Routes, which saw a record number of delegates in attendance. Following the event, new routes were secured with, amongst others, Edelweiss Air serving Zurich, Alaska Airlines serving Anchorage and Salt Lake City, Allegiant Air serving Texas and Southwest Airlines serving Des Moines and Flint. Katie Bland, Director Routes, UBM EMEA said: “We are delighted to be returning to Las Vegas for Routes Americas 2017. The continuous re-invention and rapid growth of Las Vegas has helped the city achieve record-breaking popularity, resulting in over 41 million annual visitors in 2014. We are looking forward to working with the dedicated team from Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority once again to see the Routes Americas build on its successes and continue to go from strength to strength.”
