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.

So, went here for the first time to see the Rise of the Jack-O-Lanterns. This is a really large and safe comfortable setting,... well marked so we were able to find where we were going easy and enjoyed all the pumpkin carving displays.

Have been to the L.A. Convention Center several times in the past for Gift Shows held during the year. There is a lovely entrance and much to see around the outside areas. Restrooms are plentiful and parking is available in several lots.

In a corner of the newborn Downtown LA area, is a clean CC with good services inside and an amazing offer of restaurants, hotels around that make the DTLA visit totally worth it.

Every April the Sikh celebrate vasakhi and lot of people come and there is martial arts and a parade. I go there every year but we have to remove shoes and socks and cover the head with a bandana because the Sikh are celebrating their 10 gurus birthday Guru Gobind Singh birthday.

This is a great place to hold a large convention such as the one I attended with 14,000 attendees. But you never get the feeling that you are crowded. Staff is friendly too.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
