Like its sister trade fair on the East Coast, BDwest was created to deliver a more specialized, more design-focused and more productive trade fair experience for hospitality design professionals. Five years later it’s one of the fastest-growing fairs in the U.S., in the hottest of development hotbeds, Downtown L.A.
BDwest’s home, the Los Angeles Convention Center, sits in the heart of the city’s ongoing downtown renaissance, next to the L.A. Live entertainment complex that sparked it back in 2007. Nearby, the 73-story Wilshire Grand Center, set to open in 2017 as the tallest structure in the L.A. skyline, is one of a staggering number of new hotel/residential projects currently underway, joining dozens of inventive new restaurants and bars in the downtown core.
Despite its rapid growth, BDwest remains uniquely boutique, with an elevated setting, an intimate feel, and a degree of personalized service unparalleled in our industry.
