LAS VEGAS (AP) - Tourism officials say the number of visitors to Las Vegas dropped slightly in October compared with last year.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reported Wednesday that 3.47 million visitors came to town in October, down 1.4 percent from the same month last year.

The number of conventions and meetings held in Las Vegas in October dropped 14 percent year-over-year.

Room occupancy dropped by about 2 percent from last October, led by a decline at the cheaper hotels in downtown Las Vegas. Average hotel room rates also dipped slightly to $115.

Gambling revenue for the Las Vegas Strip was down by 5.1 percent to $551.3 million.
