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.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
