Los Angeles’ convention campus is the city’s electrifying core and the gateway to Downtown meetings and events.
The heart of conventions is the 5G-equipped Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), with 720,000 square feet of exhibit hall space and a future expansion on the horizon. The Center sits 17 miles from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), neighbors 12 hotels and 50 restaurants within a walk, and is surrounded by ten distinct regions for offsite exploration.
Sharing the campus is the $2.5 billion entertainment and sports epicenter, L.A. Live. With 4 million square feet of entertainment and meeting options, L.A. Live offers four hotels, three live entertainment venues, ten event spaces and more than 20 restaurants.
Along with established, larger-than-life mainstays, exciting new developments are joining the Downtown core – most notably in LA’s hotel scene. More than 2,100 new rooms have been added since 2021, and in the near future, more than 700 new guest rooms will join the convention campus.
Current hotels, from large to luxury to LA-iconic, include full services, stylish designs and unique gathering spaces. Many of these properties are steps from entertainment and cultural venues like Crypto.com Arena, Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Dodger Stadium, The GRAMMY Museum®, Greek Theatre, and Universal Studios.
For interesting and alternative spaces in, near or less than half an hour from the core of Downtown LA, the city has countless unique offsites that are built-in attractions, conversation starters and only-in-LA experiences. Places like Exchange LA and The Belasco Theater – Live Nation are within a mile of LACC. Other unique venues like The Petersen Automotive Museum, Universal Studios and the California Science Center are nearby.
The energy behind these unequaled convention facilities, venues and entertainment options creates the magic of the Downtown convention campus and turns planners into producers when they meet in LA.
