Abstract

Room oversupply is a recent concern for Las Vegas gaming industry. The purpose of this research is to quantify this problem and try to determine whether room oversupply exists and if it does, how serious the problem is in the lodging market of Las Vegas casino hotels (the subject market). A room inventory model is developed for estimating the optimal room inventory of the subject market. The real room inventory of the past nine fiscal years and the planned room inventory of the next two fiscal years are compared with the optimal room inventory. The research finds that the room oversupply does exist and will be enlarged in the next two fiscal years.
