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.

“Large, but clean”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I was recently at the California Gift Show for the bi-annual display of wholesale gift items for the trade. As usual, it only took up a portion of the South Hall and below it, Kentia Hall.

It was difficult to get parking directly adjacent to the halls themselves. There is a huge parking structure across the street and part of the complex itself. There is a lot of walking to get to the entrance of the convention center from that parking location. Parking was under $15 for the day for this event, and registered buyers were reimbursed by the private company that runs the Gift Show.

Food availability by the convention center was sparse and quite expensive. They would modify a few selections, but charged the entire price. For example, if I got just the meat patty of the hamburger combination , they insisted on fully charging me for the fries and hamburger sandwich. I could not pay for just the patty, nor a sandwich without fries. $10 no matter what.

The bathrooms were clean and supplies did not run out.

Huge, but well laid out. I liked that fact that it is easy to move around and find where you're supposed to be.

“Beautiful convention center!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

I came to the convention center for the Idea World Fitness Convention 2013. I had read some reviews that had me concerned that the parking was going to be difficult and upwards of $20/25 a day, that the staff weren't going to be friendly, and that food was going to be nothing but long lines for limited unhealthy items, such as hot dogs. We stayed at a hotel in Pasadena, and on day one took the subways to get to the convention. Navigating the metro system wasn't as easy as we'd hoped, and we were shocked to see plenty of parking close by for just $10 a day. For the remaining days, we drove in, no problem. The convention staff were very friendly. The place is huge and beautiful...and they had plenty of healthy options for food, at least for our conference. I was pleasantly impressed with everything about it!

“Great Expo/Con Venue”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Easy to get to, (parking $$$ way too much) and many times the entrance fees are also $$$ too much, but always an awesome venue with a whole lot of stuff!! Such a large area, and always well organized, clean, and nicely done.
