Join Your Colleagues to Dine Around Los Angeles!


A Local volunteer tour guide will be guiding groups for dinner to restaurant hot spots around downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. These restaurants attract locals and tourists alike.
For those that are not familiar with DTLA, this is a great way to experience the city while not worrying about getting lost! You will have the chance to network with the conference director, Scott Mesh and fellow attendees from around the world.
Simply sign up for a dinner group and our local volunteers will take you to the local restaurant.  All restaurants are within walking distance from the host venue, the Omni Los Angeles Hotel.  Attendees are responsible for the cost of their meals therefore we recommend that they bring cash.
