Tourism officials say convention attendance was up 21 percent, mainly because of the large ConExpo-Con/Agg construction convention. The event happens every three years and drew nearly 130,000 people.

Room rates shot up for the month of March. The average daily rate hit $134, up 21 percent from the same time a year ago.

Gambling revenues in Clark County were up almost 10 percent because of strong revenue from high-limit table games.

Las Vegas also attracted gamblers placing bets on March Madness games.
