AEG Facilities’ Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) recently announced the launch of its new website lacclink.com. The new site serves as a major communication platform for LACC’s clients, guests, employees and partners. It features content and resources for clients and attendees in a streamlined, functionally and aesthetically appealing interface.
 
The website offers a range of resources to clients and guests, including basic facts, easy-to-view PDF files with parking, facility and floor plan diagrams, and strategically-placed photo galleries that demonstrate the transformative power of LACC’s exhibit space. The LACC has also introduced mutually beneficial marketing partnerships with its clients in order to boost both event and facility exposure.
 
“Enhancing the website is in tandem with our overall commitment to excellence and goal of upgrading the facility on all levels”, said Brad Gessner, senior vice president and general manager of the Los Angeles Convention Center. “We are thrilled to offer our audience a high-functioning, easy to navigate website,” Gessner added. 
 
Clients are now able to feature event descriptions, as well as include event photos on the LACC website, with the option to co-promote the event with LACC via social media. The website integrates with LACC’s social media accounts, and ties in the Convention Center’s social media campaigns, which have become a vital element of the LACC’s marketing plan. This allows LACC to provide the audience with real-time updates, green tips, event photos and industry news.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in
