LOS ANGELES, Calif., November, 2013 – Following on from IMEX America, International DMC AlliedPRA together with the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board provided eight influential Australian MICE practitioners with an introduction to LA. Based at the Intercontinental Century City, the educational program showcased the different precincts of LA taking in Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Malibu & Downtown LA.
Highlights included back lot tours of Warner Bros and Paramount Studios, Lunch at the ultra-cool W Hollywood, touring music greats at The Grammy Museum, dinner from Wolfgang Puck Catering in the legendary Conga Room at LA Live, getting up close and personal with NASA Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center, followed by a change of scenery in the exclusive celebrity enclave of Malibu after some Santa Monica pier fun left the group with wide grins and gripping oversized soft toys!
LA has long been home to all that glitters and the city was certainly shining during the trip. The MICE famil program, the first of its kind, was a great success with participants providing great feedback on both the city and the unique enhancements for incentive groups as well as the broad capacity to handle an event of any size.
