Gov20LA Logistics

Ideas and Innovation

Gov20LA is coming up soon, Two weeks to be exact.

Los Angeles is not a walking town, generally. There are public transportation systems, but in the City of Los Angeles the bus system is the strongest. There is a Metro, but it only goes to certain parts of town. If you plan on taking cabs, most take credit cards.

Recommendation: Rent a car or get a hotel near the venue so it will be an inexpensive taxi ride.

LAX is roughly 35-45 minutes away from the event site without traffic. Additionally, due to the traffic intensity in Los Angeles, always allow a little more time to drive places than you think necessary.

Hotels:
We have reserved a block of rooms at the W Hollywood, which is opening the week prior to the Camp, and is where the Friday Night Reception will be held. The W is located on Hollywood Boulevard, right in the mix of the Hollywood scene, and next door to a Red Line Metro stop. The W is approximately a 10 minute drive from the venue site. Note: This link has a secondary confirmation process that is not obvious.

Car Rental: While many of you may already get Government discounts on Rental Cars, you should also check out which offers deep discounts: Rental Car Momma - http://www.rentalcarmomma.com/cities/california.htm Also: check the Big airline sites for their car solutions in LA, sometimes cheaper than discount travel sites.

Venue Information: The Camp will be held at http://www.blankspaces.com – which is located  on Wilshire Boulevard near La Brea. There are several restaurants, and bars nearby, as well as a Starbucks and a Staples next door. The site is a co-working “hotel” with powerful technology to support our needs.
