(Las Vegas, NV) — A record breaking number of people paid a visit to Las Vegas in March.  Many of the visitors came from other countries.

Michael Leven, President and COO of Las Vegas Sands tells The Las Vegas Morning News the increase in international business is a major opportunity for Las Vegas.

Leven says one factor is more flights from overseas, but he says we need more. He says we have plenty of rooms and plenty of opportunity to grow.

Las Vegas Sands is a major player internationally with a resort  in Macau and plans for expansion into Japan and Korea depending on legislative action in those countries.
