Welcome! For the first time in a decade, our City of Angels is preparing to roll out the red carpet for IPW this May. We look forward to reconnecting with friends from around the globe as we showcase all that is new and “Now Playing” in our diverse and vibrant community. With world-class accommodations, more than 200 MICHELIN-recognized restaurants, more museums and performing arts venues than any other U.S. destination, 11 professional sports teams, and incredible theme parks and attractions, Los Angeles truly has something for everyone.
Join us for our opening event at the storied Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the grand finale at Universal Studios Hollywood. And don’t miss the highly anticipated return of California Plaza at the Los Angeles Convention Center! We also invite you to explore pre- and post-conference opportunities including destination sightseeing experiences on Friday and Saturday, exclusive discounts on attractions, dining, and entertainment through our LA Perks Pass, and familiarization trips throughout the Golden State following the tradeshow.
Above all, we’re proud that LA remains one of the world’s most diverse and inclusive communities – a destination where we can truly say that everyone is welcome. We can’t wait to welcome you to our beloved City of Angels!
My warmest regards,
President & CEO
Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board
EVENTS AROUND TOWN
May is one of the best months of the year to visit Los Angeles and enjoy outdoor activities as daytime highs average in the mid-70s°F (23-24°C) with a few of the warmer afternoons reaching into the mid-80s F (28-29°C).
ATTENDEE SAFETY TIPS:
- Always pay attention, stay alert, and be aware of your surroundings.
- Remove and stash your convention badges outside of the meeting site.
- Don’t flash any cash or credit cards.
- Walk in well-traveled and well-lit places, especially at night.
- Report suspicious behavior to the safety patrols or Los Angeles Police Department.
- If you see something, say something.
