Los Angeles Metro Meeting Venue, An Eventective User from Los Angeles, CA

The Los Angeles Convention Center is massive enough to accommodate several large events at once. I am an exhibitor for a living, and have been to conferences here three times: twice for the annual meetings of the College Art Association (2009 and 2012), and once for the Modern Language Association annual convention (2010). Each time, there have been other conferences and events---graduations, naturalization ceremonies, etc.---going on at the same time here, and have had no problems getting from point A to point B. I now stay at the JW Marriott at LA Live (stayed at the Westin Bonaventure in 2009, since the Marriott hadn't opened yet), which is a stone's throw from the convention center. Errr, except the Staples Center is in my damn way. There are always one thousand taxis parked out front, which came in handy when I was lugging thirty pounds of equipment and supplies to and from the Westin in 2009. I think it's funny that folks say this is in the ""ghetto."" It's square in the middle of downtown LA. I have been to some shady spots in Los Angeles, and this is nothing like that. I have no problems walking alone around this area, day or night. And, while I've never had to park here, I wouldn't have any qualms about it, except that it's mad expensive. I do wish there were more quick food options here that didn't involve a cart and a long line. I'd like to see some cafes and sandwich spots, similar to what the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle has. The prices for food here are also ridic, but I guess that's what you expect in a convention center! The bathrooms are plentiful and kept clean. The soap runs out when it's busy and I wish they had hand dryers instead of paper towels. Props, though, to LACC for having separate bins for trash, recycling, and composting.


Very Professional Venue, but for an Outrageous Cost, An Eventective User from Dallas, Texas

The Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California is a great venue as far as location goes. It is located in downtown Los Angeles, close to various business districts including restaurants and accommodations for out of town guests. Also, it is close to public transit for those out of town guests as well. The venue also has a great number floor plans to choose from to fit any meeting necessary; from round table to forum type meetings. Furthermore, they have a great booking system. It is easy to get a room last minute despite the large demand for this particular venue. Also, they have great technology. State of the art projectors and computers are provided in every single room as well as applicable hook ups and screens. Finally, the staff was incredibly nice and easy to get along with. They were available around the clock for questions and took care of the catering issues. Also, the conference room was kept clean and spacious; a very welcoming site for a meeting. However, there is one huge issue with this venue; the cost. The catering is overly expensive, and not that great. Also, the price to reserve and use a room is quite high compared to other venues. Perhaps, though, this is because of the professional atmosphere and the pristine location of this particular meeting venue. Overall, it is a wonderful venue to impress potential clients and such, but not the greatest choice for anything else because of its high price tag.


Best Convention Center in Los Angeles, An Eventective User from Los Angeles, CA

The Los Angeles Convention Center, which is located in downtown LA, is probably the most known of all convention centers in the area. You may have heard of it because it is host to such popular conventions like E3 and the Anime Expo and is a popular place for celebrities to speak at. The entire convention center is very large and spacious and it can hold up to 10,000 people at a time. Considering how long this convention center has been around and how many people go through it in a single day, this center is very well maintained and the entire building is in great shape. The security and the rest of employees working there are all very friendly and very helpful - which is perfect since it is very easy to get lost in that area, so you will always have someone to give you directions. What is also great is that this entire center is completely solar powered, which is great for the environment; it's actually the world's biggest solar generating convention center. There are many food choices and catering in the area as well. Although the food is a little pricey, it really is worth it because it tastes so good. There are menus are available online for download on the official website. There is also a choice of Starbucks right outside of the convention center and with the order of a buffet (either breakfast, lunch or dinner), Starbucks premium coffee is served with it at no additional cost. Overall, for meetings and venues, this is the first choice to pop into your head if you're in the LA area, and it should be the only option. The Los Angeles Convention Center serves its purpose and more.


A great place for a conference, An Eventective User from Chicago, Illinois

This was a great place. I went there for a business conference about a year ago. The facility itself, was very easy to find and it was easy to navigate. The employees there were very friendly and helpful. It was a very comfortable and professional environment and I enjoyed my time there. If I ever have to go to LA on business again, hopefully my conference will be at this facility again. I almost got transferred to LA and I was already thinking about having business conferences here. I ended up staying in Chicago, but this conference center was probably one of the best I have seen. I have traveled all over the country and this was a memorable conference because the facility was so nice. I got to talking to some of the workers and they could tell I was from out of town. They were very understanding and respectful. They helped me with any questions I had and did their best to make sure I had a good experience. I would recommend anyone in that area who needs to have a conference of some kind to try and make it here. Coming in from out of town, my biggest concern was not being able to find where I needed to go. The people are helpful and they even have a nice map at the front of the facility to help direct guests.
