Long striving for competitiveness in the international convention and tourism marketplace, the Los Angeles Convention Center/Farmer’s Field partnership held promise. Though the sports venue has gone elsewhere, billions of dollars continue to be invested in Downtown Los Angeles, and the development of eleven new and planned area hotels represent a critical link. A promising strategy for the Los Angeles Convention Center may finally, and permanently, cement the facility’s prominence as a convention and tourism superstar in an increasingly bustling downtown.
