Note from TMD Board Chair, Javier Cano

Javier Cano

Dear LATMD Hoteliers,

It was wonderful seeing many of you at our in-person TMD Regional Meetings last month which was our first in-person Regional Meetings since December 2019!  In addition to staff reports, each meeting concluded with an active discussion specific to future opportunities of each region.  For those not able to attend, please refer to article below “TMD Regional Hotel Meeting Recap”.

We know it has been a busy time for many of our hotels as we welcome our summer visitors and business groups to Los Angeles.  For a warm welcome, Los Angeles Tourism will be shipping quantities of the Los Angeles Visitor Guide for your teams to share with your guests as you wish. 

There are lot of exciting events coming up, and Los Angeles Tourism has already begun planning to welcome IPW in Los Angeles in May 2024.  While domestic leisure travel has led the recovery.  Tourism Economics continues to predict it may be another 24-36 month for our critical international markets to completely recover, so the hosting IPW next year in Los Angeles couldn’t be more timely as international recovers.

Also right around the corner is the Annual Tourism Outlook Forum scheduled September 19 at Novo Theatre, so don’t forget to register soon.  Program and registration details are included below.   Enjoy the rest of your summer!
