Los Angeles Convention Center Upgrades

Starting next month and expected to take a year to complete, the Los Angeles Convention Center will receive a $10 million upgrade designed to “enhance the customer experience and to help attract new shows,” according to Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board officials.

 

Work will occur around shows and events scheduled in the center.

 

“The planned changes inside the Convention Center complement the changes taking place outside the Center, including new hotels, restaurants, shopping and cultural offerings throughout Downtown L.A.,” said Ernest Wooden Jr., president and CEO of the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism).

 

He added, “Every aspect of Downtown Los Angeles is on the move, and it’s fueling L.A.’s surging popularity as a meetings and conventions destination.”

 

Upgrades to the LACC will include a solar-read, energy-efficient, “cool roof”; new carpeting throughout the center; automated parking systems; remodeling 299-seat theater; new energy-efficient and noise-reducing air units; and upgrading air walls, IT infrastructure, lighting systems and numerous operating systems.
