CTD partnered with Councilmember Traci Park, LATCB, and the Hotel Association of LA to host the first Tourism Day at City Hall. More than 75 tourism stakeholders -- including local hotels, museums, attractions, and citywide event clients -- attended. The day started with a welcome reception in the Tom Bradley Room with Councilmembers Park, Krekorian, Blumenfield, Lee, de Leon, and McOsker. The group then went to City Council Chambers where Councilmember Park (Chair of the Trade, Travel, and Tourism Committee) welcomed everyone to the Council meeting and spoke about the critical role that tourism plays for LA's economy. Doane Liu, Chief Tourism Officer and Executive Director of the City Tourism Department, and Adam Burke, President & CEO of LATCB, gave a presentation on the state of the industry.
