Owner description: 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.

The convention center was nice and clean, big and Im not sure if it was catered by the center or by someone else but it was DELICIOUS. In Downtown of LA next to the Staples center, near the espn bar, and a bunch of other eateries (including one by Wolfgang Puck) Nice location and the area is not too busy.

“Choice Hotels Annual Convention”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

This was an excellent venue for the Choice Hotels Annual Convention! The space is HUGE and very accommodating to such a large group of people. The meeting rooms were great. It was a lot of walking, but that's expected for such a large convention!

“OK, little small, catered food was dull”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

I attended the Adobe Conference in May of 2013. The convention center is dated, small, and not very well organized. The food was bland, flavorless and gross. If you attend the Seminar, the make sure to take advantage of the grab and go snack in the morning and the breaks during the morning/afternoon. Convention Center has very large foyers, but the rooms and halls are really tiny. Bathrooms are sparce, not that clean. Location is good, close to LA Live.

“Visalus convention”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

What a beautiful convention center. Heating and cooling were right on and the sound was excellent. I did like that the center had some great food options, with a cafeteria and in the heart of the Staples center area there were many restaurants to choose from!

“Grammy Awards After Party”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

Only complaint is not enough seating. The after party was huge, had so much food and drink. Lots of entertainment. As the night wore on the crowd thinned out and seating could be found.
