Downtown is the heart of meetings in LA, where the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) anchors the convention campus and is located just 17 miles from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Sharing the campus is the $2.5 billion entertainment and sports epicenter, L.A. LIVE, with 4 million square feet of entertainment and meeting options. L.A. LIVE has transformed Downtown into the entertainment hub it is today — home to numerous restaurants, The GRAMMY Museum®, a bowling alley, a cineplex and a broadcasting center for ESPN. In addition, it's located within a mile of top hotels, including the JW Marriott, and has more than 5,000 hotel rooms on campus.
