Las Vegas is a world leader in hospitality and tourism. In 2021, 32.2 million people from all over the globe made Las Vegas a destination during an on-going pandemic - that’s roughly 619,000 people per week or 2.6 million people each month. Harry Reid International Airport is one of the fastest growing and busiest in the United States. Last year, visitors to Las Vegas spent 36.9 billion dollars.
Las Vegas understands food and beverage; Las Vegas understands entertainment; Las Vegas understands hotels; and Las Vegas understands conventions. While a reputation for gaming experiences provided a catalyst for Las Vegas’ tourist driven economy, today, guests visit for much more than a spin at the roulette table. The list of attraction choices includes a plethora of opportunities such as: hotels with unique architecture, shopping experiences, celebrity chef restaurants, concerts, theatrical productions, night clubs, athletic competitions, outdoor trails, and museum exhibits. It takes many individuals to provide this vast array of action.
Faith Lutheran’s Hospitality & Tourism Academy is designed to prepare students for further study and service as leaders in the industry.
