Los Angeles is one of the top destinations globally for medical conferences, conventions and summits—and the quintessential place for discovery.
The region’s elite medical community is one of the best in the world, with awarded and renowned hospitals (two of U.S. News’ best for 2021-22), preeminent health and research centers, and advanced academic establishments. These include:
UCLA Medical Center, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles Medical Center/Kaiser Permanente, LAC+USC Medical Center and California Institute of Technology.
According to Biocom California, “20% of all California life science jobs are in Los Angeles County. The majority of those are in research and biopharmaceuticals.”
Thanks to the destination’s prestigious institutions and work in the life sciences, LA County receives the most NIH funding in California—$1.9 billion (more than any other county in the state)—and the metro region is among the top five centers for health tech companies in the world.
If meeting and event professionals are in search of a medical meeting location with a creative twist, Los Angeles is the place—home to uncommonly cool reception venues, iconic landmarks, globally-inspired attractions and some of the city’s shiniest new arrivals. Sunshine and sweeping scenery are near-effortless additions into the mix of plans, as well. From picturesque oceanside spaces to outdoor balconies with that sparkling-city backdrop, LA’s venues with a view inspire bright minds and appease the most selective of planners.
With Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) serving the destination, medical meeting planners are given the opportunity for unrivaled, global accessibility—attracting attendees who otherwise might not be able to attend their meeting or event.
In LA, anything is possible, from new frontiers in medicine to global connections among the world’s brightest minds. Here, the Capital of Creativity is also the mecca of medical meetings.
