AEG Facilities’ Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) recently announced the launch of its new website lacclink.com. The new site serves as a major communication platform for LACC’s clients, guests, employees and partners. It features content and resources for clients and attendees in a streamlined, functionally and aesthetically appealing interface.
 
The website offers a range of resources to clients and guests, including basic facts, easy-to-view PDF files with parking, facility and floor plan diagrams, and strategically-placed photo galleries that demonstrate the transformative power of LACC’s exhibit space. The LACC has also introduced mutually beneficial marketing partnerships with its clients in order to boost both event and facility exposure.
 
“Enhancing the website is in tandem with our overall commitment to excellence and goal of upgrading the facility on all levels”, said Brad Gessner, senior vice president and general manager of the Los Angeles Convention Center. “We are thrilled to offer our audience a high-functioning, easy to navigate website,” Gessner added. 
 
Clients are now able to feature event descriptions, as well as include event photos on the LACC website, with the option to co-promote the event with LACC via social media. The website integrates with LACC’s social media accounts, and ties in the Convention Center’s social media campaigns, which have become a vital element of the LACC’s marketing plan. This allows LACC to provide the audience with real-time updates, green tips, event photos and industry news.

The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth changes its name to Saint John’s Resort in August.

It’s part of a rebranding with multiple enhancements that Director of Sales and Marketing Fadi Sibani says make it a true Detroit destination resort.

Formerly owned by the Archdiocese of Detroit as St. John’s Provincial Seminary from 1948 to 1988, the property was transformed in the 1990s as a center for youth and families before it was redeveloped into a hotel and conference center in the 2000s. 

 

First came COVID. Then came the tornado.

The northern Michigan community of Gaylord was just starting to rebound from the pandemic with its groups and events business as a new season was getting underway when a rare EF3 tornado with estimated wind speeds between 136 and 165 miles per hour struck May 20.

Two people were killed and at least 44 were injured, according to official reports at the time. West Michigan meteorologist Bill Steffen said it was the strongest tornado to strike in the U.S. that month. 

 

Six months ago, Detroit’s TCF Center got a new name—Huntington Place. Now the convention center is getting striking new public art—an outdoor sculpture by acclaimed artist Scott Hocking. The 15-foot diameter bronze sculpture, Floating Citadel, will be located in the main circle drive of Huntington Place in downtown Detroit. The installation of the sculpture is expected to be complete by late summer. Renderings and images are available here
