Los Angeles: Why LA is the Perfect Conference, Convention or Meeting Destination

Gone are the days when downtown Los Angeles rolled up the sidewalks at 5 p.m., and that’s great news for meeting planners seeking out a destination conference or meeting venue that will keep attendees engaged and entertained. Today, vacationers and destination meeting attendees are far more likely to find an evening shift to red carpets that beckon visitors to bustling restaurants, lounges and clubs. Los Angeles seems to bring out the celebrity wannabe in everyone, and opportunities are ample for meeting-goers to sample the glamorous Hollywood vibe.

The city also has a natural advantage in luring meetings and conventions to the West Coast: a mild climate with more than 300 sunny days a year, which inspires corporate event planners to stage outdoor events during their stay. Many destination meeting organizers say the weather is a major draw for the region. An outdoor cocktail reception in February can sound pretty attractive to an East Coast resident stuck in a stuffy meeting room, and even in January attendees might take a long lunch to stick their toes in the sand just once.

Conferences such as the American Heart Association’s Stroke Conference and special events like the Grammys, ESPYs and Emmys have brought their own excitement and glamour to L.A.’s downtown convention centers, making downtown the place to be—where meeting attendees can rub elbows with the Hollywood elite in the evening and conduct serious business in elegant meeting venues and high end conference settings during the day.

The name Hollywood conjures up images of fame, fortune and glamour—and groups can at least enjoy the glamour. Today’s Hollywood glitters with more than movie stars. The music industry has its own cadre of performers who can be found along Sunset Strip and at area clubs, and sports figures aren’t far behind. The Hollywood Walk of Fame turned 50 last year and this year solidified the growing link between sports and entertainment by adding a star for Kobe Bryant of the L.A. Lakers.

So rediscover Los Angeles, add a little glitz to your next meeting— hot pink mini-dresses, and trucker hats are optional.
