LAS VEGAS (AP) - Tourism officials say Las Vegas conventions, casinos and clubs drew 39.67 million visitors in 2013, just under the record 39.73 million set the year before.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority said Friday that the year-end statistics reflect strength in an industry with a $45 billion local economic impact.

The nearly 150,600 rooms in the city and Strip averaged 84.3 percent occupancy, and average daily room rates increased $3, to nearly $111 per night in 2013.

Casino revenues reached $9.7 billion countywide, up 2.9 percent from 2012.

Downtown Las Vegas revenues decreased 1.6 percent; the Las Vegas Strip increased 4.8 percent.
