Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board Launches meetLA.com




Meet Los Angeles

Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism) recently launched meetLA.com, a new website designed as a comprehensive, one-stop gateway for meeting professionals looking to conduct business in Los Angeles. 
 
MeetLA.com provides professionals with critical tools they can use to navigate the city of Los Angeles with ease including:

• Find a Venue – Users can discover L.A.’s wide range of venues including hotels, unique event spaces or the Los Angeles Convention Center and filter between L.A.’s regions, attendee numbers (from 50 to thousands), meeting room totals and minimum square footage to immediately obtain targeted results.

• Compare Venues – Selected locations can then be quickly compared with detailed descriptions and up-to-date meeting room specifications. 

• Interactive Mapping – An integrated Google map displays selected venue locations, estimated distances, nearby attractions and public transportation routes.
 
“L.A. Tourism understands the importance of the meetings industry and we’ve taken detailed measures to create a website that truly reflects a planner’s interests and desires,” said Darren K. Green, senior vice president of sales at the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. “meetLA.com is designed to ensure we connect with, and provide an engaging platform for, all generations of the meeting community.”
 
The website is easily accessible from all mobile devices and offers creative and up-to-date content including information on new and refreshed hotels, group dining, green meetings and airport options. Planners can also use the service to contact L.A. Tourism sales staff directly by clicking a link.
 
The launch of the new site follows the unveilng of L.A. Tourism’s meetings campaign, meetL.A., which serves as an introduction to planners who might be unfamiliar with the destination, as well as offer those who haven’t visited recently an opportunity to rediscover Los Angeles. 
 
Citywide convention business is booming for Los Angeles with 33 conventions booked for 2016, the most for the city since 2001. The economic impact of these conventions is estimated to be $429 million. Additionally, 2017 is expected  to be a major year for tourism in Los Angeles, as bookings are approaching 350,000 projected hotel room nights generated, due to larger citywide conventions than in 2016.
