Our Sales & Events Teams

The Los Angeles Convention Center's one and only goal is to make your event experience flawless from start to finish. Our expert teams are knowledgeable in making any event a huge success. We invite you to discover why meeting planners and attendees consistently rank our staff as one of the best. To the left you'll find a listing of each of our sales and events staff with their contact information.

An event manager from our event management department is assigned to your event when, and often before, your license agreement has been executed. Your event manager works closely with you and your staff and contractors from the initial planning stages through your move-out, and is your principle source of information and coordination regarding the convention center and our procedures.

Your event manager answers your questions, collects pertinent information and distributes it to our operations team, identifies potential red flags and proposes alternatives before red flags turn into problems. Your event manager facilitates planning meetings and site visits, conducts your pre-event meeting, prepares our event memo and drawings which are the detailed instructions for your event to our staff, and is with you throughout the entire event. In short, your event manager is crucial to the success of your event, and is a key member of your team.

Plan Your Event
