Los Angeles is a truly global metropolis, a trend-setting city with a fascinating history and a rich cultural heritage. Los Angeles is second to none when it comes to cultural attractions, whether it’s the Space Shuttle Endeavour, Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Getty Center or art galleries and urban art. With its thriving nightlife and renowned theatre productions, LA is rightfully known as the entertainment capital of the world. Attendees of this year's conference were proud to behold the interoperability and close coordination between local, state and federal partners protecting the largest port in the United States.
Nine venues in the region welcomed conference attendees to learn outside of a classroom setting.
These sites included:
Emergency Operations Center
Getty Center Museum
Joint Regional Intelligence Center
LA County Health Services Agency
LA Fire Dept - Frank Hotchkin Training Ctr
Long Beach Port
Port of Los Angeles
Elegantly presiding over the City of Angels, The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites provided the ultimate urban oasis in the heart of the business district for the 2013 National Homeland Security Conference. An international symbol that has come to represent the beauty and sophistication of the city itself, the famous Westin Los Angeles hotel well accomodated the needs of this year's conference. As one of the most photographed destinations in the world, alighted by an atrium lobby, attendees were appreciative of the fine hotel accommodations and hospitality.
Thank you Westin Bonaventure
We also extend gratitude to: The LA Hotel Downtown
This hotel conveniently connects via the pedestrian walkway directly to the Bonaventure, and provided easy access to all conference activities.
