Event Report: International Impact of "La La Land"


La La Land continues to engage international event attendees. We recently brought the show into the ballroom.

The Event:
WTCF Los Angeles Fragrant Hills Tourism Summit 2017
Dates: 19-20 September 2017
Location: InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown
Guest Count: 230

Our Task: highlight and showcase iconic L.A. imagery in all decor and entertainment.

We had a blast bringing "La La Land" back on stage, for the first time indoors onto a ballroom stage.
The quintuple Oscar® winning film proves to be a wonderful entertainment concept to promote Los Angeles internationally.

Ted Bowers: "The colorful backdrops are energizing and very appealing to Asian audiences. The music has become an internationally understood and recognized soundtrack for Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board promotes filming locations to the tourism industry. La La Land's happy, upbeat tone makes it the perfect entertainment vehicle to promote our home town or bring that L.A. feel to any event. The audience loved the custom mash up version. The cast got a rousing round of applause."
We are proud of Executive Producer Kristen Rensch and Director of Sales Alisa Walsh for spearheading and realizing this production.
Janet Elkins and Doug Johnson celebrate with the artists in front of our step-and-repeat.

We are happy to provide event video upon request.

Event Location: the New Anaheim Convention Center North Is Open!


September 26, 2017: Anaheim Convention Center officially opened the addition, ACC North, at the conclusion of a 2-year expansion project.
Anaheim now offers 1,8 million square feet of convention space.

We love all the event possibilities.

Janet and Alisa report from the opening ceremony in Anaheim, California.

Congratulations to our friends in Anaheim! 
ACC North truly adds value to the meeting and event space.

Janet: "ACC North was designed to work with natural light. However, it can be blacked out. The open floor plans,100,000 square feet on the 100 level and an additional 100,000 square feet of carpeted, column-free space on the 200 level, allow us maximum flexibility. We also love the fact that Anaheim maximizes the benefits of our California climate with the 10,000 square foot outdoor balcony. Sunshine and fresh air during a meeting will make everyone happy."


What a difference 50 years make. Top, the 1967 opening, bottom the 2017 ACC North opening ceremony.
The City of Anaheim has continually invested in expanding and modernizing the convention center and bringing upscale hotel and entertainment venues into the surrounding area.

We have a long history of producing large scale events in Anaheim, just a few miles from our office. The indoor and outdoor possibilities allow any size and style event.

We are looking forward to bringing your event to Anaheim.

Wishing you a wonderful week.
