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.

This year's Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) took the country by storm with 275 events taking place across 53 countries, breaking all previous records. This was an increase from GMID 2018 with 206 events in 41 countries. The events of GMID 2019 were also done on a much larger scale, with 250 to 400 professionals attending each of them.

 

Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) awarded five meeting and event professionals with a $1,000 scholarship as part of its commitment to Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). The scholarship will help its recipients earn their Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) certification.
