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.
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.
will set you up with a customized applet for the Camp.
