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.

Got a chance to explore most of the buildings of this sprawling, mega center. All are connected and do not involve having to leave the friendly confines. Parked across the street for $10 at surface lot.

Been able to visit the LA AUTO Show many times in recent years. The displays from different Auto Makers are breath taking and really bring out the local car lovers. They have a way of motivating you to think about purchasing the latest model. Wonderful chance to touch and get a feel for the next best technology. The food and... More

I had to leave my conference early one day due to dehydration. The restaurant and coffee shop was closed, the water/pop machine would not take anything but cards (which I didn't have) and the water fountains were just a trickle. There isn't even anywhere close to buy anything. Other than that the facility is clean, lots of rooms, a little... More

Parking is $20 which isn't bad. We went for LA's comic con. It drew 90,000 people so I can't really complain about the long cafeteria lines upstairs. They also had food trucks outside. Many bathrooms which is a plus.

My friends and I attended Wonder-Con 2016 here and had a blast! Not quite as nice as the Anaheim Convention Centre, but it's still a well maintained, spacious building in a decent area close to public transit. We took the Metro each day from Hollywood and it took about a half hour. It's also at a good good location close... More

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.

Time was the LACC was in a scary part of LA. It's good to see the continuing positive development of this area with LA Live now well established and construction moving forward.

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.
