The Marriott Los Angeles Downtown is honored to partner with LA INC. The Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau to host convention meeting planners during its annual Emmy Experience Weekend. Set to take place September 19-22, 2008 the weekend will provide planners with the 'ultimate LA experience' including privately hosted receptions and meal functions, luxury accommodations, tours of Los Angeles, and interactive events. The weekend will conclude when the selected meeting planners and their guests will walk the red carpet at the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the NOKIA Theatre L.A. Live.
The weekend will offer planners and their guests the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the numerous hotels and event venues, as well as the superior services available to them when booking their convention in Los Angeles.
