The Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board has debuted a new iteration of discoverlosangeles.com after planning that continued for over a year.

The Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (Los Angeles Tourism) is the official destination marketing and sales organization for Los Angeles. Los Angeles Tourism’s digital team built a mobile-first design of the website that will enhance response, search and accessibility for users.

L.A. Tourism has employed some of the most talented writers and photographers in the L.A. area to create a fun, full library of content, ranging from guides on hidden neighborhood gems to favorite beaches by playlist and places to visit inspired by tourists’ astrological signs.

“We look forward to serving travelers’ needs with our latest mobile-first version, which is packed with user-friendly attributes,” said Bill Karz, vice president of digital marketing for Los Angeles Tourism.

Other highlights of the website include interactive maps, personalization, an events calendar, and content available in French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, and Japanese.

Los Angeles reached a historic milestone in 2018, welcoming 50 million visitors for the first time ever and accomplishing the destination’s tourism goal two years early. The new record is 1.5 million visitors higher than 2017’s total, marking the eighth-consecutive year of tourism growth for Los Angeles.  

 

Los Angeles-based Factory Place Hospitality Group has hired Bryan Marn and Janalane Southard to oversee restaurant sales and events at its properties in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Marn joins the FPHG team as events director for the group’s Los Angeles restaurants—The Factory Kitchen, Officine BRERA, and sixth+mill pizzeria and bar. Southard joins the team as restaurant sales manager for the newly opened The Factory Kitchen in The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. 

 

Hyatt Place Pasadena has officially opened across from the Pasadena Convention Center, offering an ideal location and high-end amenities for meeting and event planners.
