In Los Angeles, anything is possible, from new frontiers in medicine to global connections among the world’s brightest minds. As a top destination globally for medical conferences, conventions and summits, this mecca of medical meetings happens to be the quintessential place for discovery.

LA’s elite health science 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.

In addition, 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.

Los AngelesHome to uncommonly cool reception venues, iconic landmarks, globally-inspired attractions and shiny new arrivals throughout the hospitality community, LA is the place for medical meetings with a creative twist. Sunshine and sweeping scenery are near-effortless additions to the mix of plans. 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.

When it comes to the logistics of experiencing all that LA offers, the West Coast’s largest airport, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), provides easy access in and out of the region — like 190 non-stop destinations in 38 countries, a world-class transportation system and more than 50 LAX area hotels. This unrivaled, global access brings together innovative professionals within the medical industry. It attracts attendees who otherwise might have been unable to attend an event due to limited airlift and transportation options.
