The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), an award winning one, has played a big role in the economic as well as cultural significance of the city. There is not doubt for the fact that this one is regarded among the most technologically advanced, functionally great, and architecturally delighting venues on the planet. Nestled in southwest downtown, the Los Angeles Convention Center is the annual platform where events like the Anime Expo and Greater Los Angeles Auto Show are held. Among the events, the novel ones include the Primetime Emmy Awards, Abilities Expo, Microsoft WPC, and movie filmings. And that, it is famous among the video games fans for the E3 technology.

In late 2008, the LACC became the first U.S. convention center to be awarded the highest certification in the Leadership of Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB). Serving the attendees, exhibitors, and event planners, the Los Angeles Convention Center is situated at such a location from where the major points of the city are easily accessible. And yes, just the next door is L.A. Live where endless activities at Nokia Theater, Club Nokia, The Conga Room, Staples Center, Lucky Strike, Ritz-Carlton Residences, and Grammy Museum are enough to keep you entertained all the time.

At LACC, the trademark steel and the glass pavilions that are the home of the exhibition halls, lobbies, and towers are suitably connected via a meeting room concourse; all of which together form a majestically cohesive center. Stretching up to 720,000 square feet for the exhibitions as well as 147,000 square feet for the space for meetings along with a theater for 299 seaters, the LACC offers a paramount setting for all kinds of events. With this, in United States, the Los Angeles Convention Center is among the largest of its kinds.

In the north half of the edifice, the lobby floors houses the two big multicolored, inlaid terrazzo maps of 13,000 m2 by the artist Alexis Smith. One of them that shows the world and nestled on the Pacific Rim adorns the main lobby’s full floor, whereas the constellation map flanking the north celestial pole coast the upstairs lobby’s floor. The other features of the LACC include the South Hall that is also known as the Tom Bradley (Mayor) Exhibit Hall, Kentia Hall just below the above that is assumed to be transformed into a car parking garage for 415 cars in future, West Hall that is known as the Sam Yorty (Mayor) Exhibit Hall, Petree Hall, three food courts, Concourse as a meeting room of two storeys over the Pico Boulevard, and on-site parking with electrical charge stations for 5,600 vehicles.

Coming to the services, the experienced staff offers adept customer service and can also answer to all your interrogations besides fulfilling the needs.

Whether the event is for 10 people or for 7000 folks, whether it is formal or casual; the food service is something that you will always remember – thanks to its diverse features – custom menu design, special cakes and desserts, decorating services, gourmet presentations, and specialty linen, theme, as well as décor.
