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.

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.

I have never been to a convention that attracts over 100,000 like minded/Amime people. This convention center almost got it right, it is close to the Metro and had the foresight to have many food trucks in the parking lot out front to feed that many people.

The venue was big, space enough for all the exhibits and events for the anime expo. There was a few food options inside, and not enough dining tables set up. But overall its good.

The L.A. Convention Center is showing its age. It smells musty and old (some rooms worse than others). While the lighting in the exterior hallways is nice, with lots of windows and glass ceilings, the lighting in all the meeting rooms is quite low, resulting in a depressing ambiance - not something desirable for a professional conference. I don't know... More

The Rupal Drag Con was awesome. It was our first time going to a drag convention. We only went for 1 day but next year we are definitely going for the entire weekend. There is so much to see that you really do need 2 days to see everything and to get to meet all the queens. The opening night... More

Neighborhood 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.
