    Southern Nevada’s tourism metrics are creeping ever closer to the prepandemic days of 2019, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reported Thursday.

    Visitor volume is up nearly 50 percent from last year, and convention attendance has grown exponentially since meetings, conventions and trade shows began returning to Southern Nevada in June.

    Conventions and shows came to a virtual halt when convention venues were shuttered as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19.
