This is a great venue for the LA International Auto Show which is held here every November. The center is large enough to display autos from almost every manufacturer in the world. Also the restaurants serve very good lite fare food such as sandwiches, salads,...More

NO SIGNS stating it was illegal were visible, and it was clearly a touristy area, but the police (one was Jackson, #33397) chose to focus on a lone, well-dressed female crossing from a convention center to a hotel... HIGHLY suspicious of MOTIVES and NOT concerned...More

You'd expect that Los Angels would have a big convention center but I can't say a lot of great things about the overall design. Something of a "U" shape straddling Pico Blvd., large conferences that occupy the entire facility will involve a lot of walking...More

We recently attended the Mobile World Congress - Americas in the Los Angeles, CA Convention Center. Its a modern, vast, and nice convention center that can host from small to very very large. It has many different venue opportunities. While in the modern upscale part...More

Last year, 2017, Anime LA was the most disorganized mess I have ever seen. On Saturday of that year, the line snaked through the housing developments on the other side of the freeway. I could not believe that they, the convention center officials, could allow...More

Definitely a big place, so wear comfortable shoes. It's right next to the Staples Center and LA Live, so there's more stuff to do outside the convention center.

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
