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.

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

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
