Description:

The Los Angeles Convention Center attracts millions of visitors annually...

The Los Angeles Convention Center attracts millions of visitors annually and is renowned internationally as a prime site for conventions, trade shows, and exhibitions. Located in the cultural, business, and entertainment mecca of Downtown Los Angeles, the LACC is an integral economic component of the Southern California area, and remains an enduring symbol of environmental sustainability and social responsibility for our community. First opened to the public in 1971, the LACC has since undergone modernization and expansion; as a testament to our continuous effort to enhance our facility and services, the LACC is embarking on its fourth phase of renovation under AEG’s management this year. The year-long transformation will enhance both functionality and aesthetics of the LACC, and will include replacing existing carpet, installing the latest energy-efficient products such as “cool roofs” and new air handling units, completely remodeling the theatre, and upgrading IT infrastructure and operating systems throughout the Center.

The food service is horrible. Be prepared to stand in line for at least 30 minutes to get the high school cafeteria quality food. Also there is apparently only one coffee urn to serve all the exhibitors at the show. When empty, it must be hauled away and refilled, which takes forever.

Attending OFC conference this week. Facilities, parking, accessibility are all great. For the number of distinguished people attending they could have really made a much better quality arrangement for food. The quality there is like a middle school cafeteria with massive lines for even a coffee. They ran out of food and ran out of coffee before 4 pm !... More

Big convention center. Able to handle global conventions. Very clean inside, appears to be constantly policed. However, the police should visit the car parks where they charge $20 per day to park! The attendant told me that I could park to midnight for that price😐

Came to LA to see my favorite team, the Cleveland Cavs play the clippers. The staples center and area was great. Very nice arena and entertainment. Great Clippers team. Only disappointment was from the Cavs end as they did not play four of their starters.

Very clean and very friendly staff. The roof was super leaky one day when it rained and it was not just in once space. The entire G hall and the entrance to it had buckets scattered across. Other than that, its a very beautiful building and excellent for shows and conferences :)

My boss left her pad folio after a convention she attended there. She was lost without it. Sean was so kind to locate it in their lost and found. He then proceeded to ship it back to us. I emailed him a return label and he took it to a FedEx location to ship it back to us; saving us... More

Enjoyed my time at the All Star weekend fanfair! Some of the signage to route and way fare could have been better (to save redundant steps), but the staff were helpful.

Attended a conference his and really liked the convention areas but some of the rooms are located a good 10-15 minute walk away. But the place is clean and well lit, but the layout is very very long corridors. Wish they had free wifi also

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
