General Information about Los Angeles for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals
With more than one million inhabitants, Los Angeles is the second most populated city in the US, after New York, and the financial, commercial and cultural centre of Southern California. Nicknamed the City of Angels, Los Angeles is most famous for its film and television industry, being home to film studios such as the Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, and Universal. Another world-famous site is the Hollywood Boulevard, where TCL Chinese Theatre displays the handprints and footprints of prominent celebrities. Due to the fact that one out of six Los Angeles residents are working in the entertainment industry (as filmmakers, actors, dancers, writers, musicians etc.), the city is often called ‘the Creative Capital of the World.’ However, besides its extraordinary entertainment industry, Los Angeles is also renowned for its international trade, technology, petroleum industry, fashion, clothing and tourism.
