A Business Travellers Guide: Los Angeles

A business guide to Los Angeles
Just thinking of Los Angeles conjures up images of celebrity parties, Oscar ceremonies and the Hollywood sign but there is more to the City of Angels than just the entertainment industry. Historically, Silicon Valley in San Francisco has been the tech hub of California but Los Angeles is starting to see a dramatic increase of tech start-ups – Snapchat and Tinder, two of the biggest apps of all time, are based in LA.

 Nestled on the west coast of America, LA is a great place for a bit of downtime during an important business trip. The appealing climate and vast array of activities make it an extremely popular destination for tourists with over 6.5 million international visitors each year!

Muscle beach on the Venice Boardwalk showcases buskers, street dancers and magicians, not to mention the fitness-crazed inhabitants of LA. The well-known Hollywood Boulevard and Universal Studio tours are an engaging way to learn about the cities film industry.
After a busy day of meetings and conferences, head to the Staples Centre where you can watch the Lakers in their famous purple and gold jerseys or spend a summers evening relaxing at Dodger stadium with a hot-dog and a beer watching baseball.
For a bit of culture visit the Museum of Contemporary Art (free on Thursdays between 5-8pm!) and for a mind-blowing, astronomical education, check out the world’s most advanced star projector at Griffith Observatory.
The city boasts over 1,500 buses and a subway system that can take you from Downtown LA to Hollywood in just 15 minutes. It’s recommended that you use Metro Trip Planner before arriving to check if your accommodation is near a Metro Route/Station.
STK Los Angeles is the perfect spot for a sophisticated meal; the modern steakhouse, blended with a luxurious bar and lounge, creates the perfect atmosphere for a Friday night treat.  Forever the social hotspot, the STK vibe makes for an amazing night out on the town.
Oh, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for the occasional celebrity cameo.
Did you know: Los Angeles was part of Mexico until 1847 when it was officially declared to be American land.
