A Look at How Las Vegas Will Recover From Covid-19 Pandemic

Recovering From a Pandemic: Las Vegas

Recovering from a Pandemic: Las Vegas

The covid-19 pandemic hit America hard. 2020 has been a brutal year. Just like the rest of the world, the United States was not ready for what 2020 had in store. We weren’t ready for a virus to take our entire economy a step backwards. We weren’t ready for our supply chains to be hit as hard as they were….

But it doesn’t matter what we were ready for. It still happened.

Las Vegas was hit hard by covid. You can see it in the traffic patterns. You can see it in the buying behaviors. You can see it in the tourism reports. Anywhere you look in Las Vegas you can see signs of the damage that covid-19 had on our great city.

I’m worried about the future of Las Vegas. Now, this doesn’t make me any less bullish on the city. I believe Las Vegas has a lot going for it. I’m not a huge gambler, so I don’t just look at Las Vegas as a gambling town. The first word that comes to mind when I think of Las Vegas isn’t gambling, so I’m not worried about that as being a huge factor in the future success of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Industries Hit The Hardest by Covid-19

Every industry in Las Vegas took a major hit by covid-19 and the pandemic of 2020, but these are the ones hit the hardest:

  • Tradeshows
  • Hotels and resorts
  • Nightclubs and dayclubs 
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Gyms and fitness centers


Similar to what I stated in my post on Surviving Covid-19 in Las Vegas, think of this content as a working draft. If this is content that you’re interested in and want to read more, please let me know and I’ll keep writing posts and updates for you. I’m going to try to continue improving this and expanding upon it as I put more of my thoughts and experiences out there. Keep checking back and refreshing the page. The only way I’ll ever get this content out there is by clicking publish, so sometimes, I’ll publish something that is not completely done, but I usually come back to finish it or improve it. I hate having content sitting in draft or idle mode because I’ll never actually get around to publishing it.
