When arriving in LA for business, there are a few different elements and features you need to take advantage of. Los Angeles, as the second largest city in the country, possesses its own set of travel burdens you need to move past. Of course, with this being said, whether it is your first time in LA or your 100th time, you are sure to enjoy yourself. You just need to take these extra precautions in order to make sure you don’t run into any common problems that might take place.
If at all possible, check with your hotel and see if it provides an airport pickup. While on business, you don’t really want to rent out a car. Renting a car makes it difficult to find locations to park and to place your vehicle when you arrive at the site of a meeting. This is why renting out car services for general transportation is desirable. On top of this, you want to focus on being picked up at the airport. Waiting around at LAX for hours on end is not something that is very desirable, and the sheer number of individuals who make their way to the car rental sites can cause you to wait an extra few hours for your vehicle. Instead, with the airport pickup service from your hotel you should not have to worry about any sort of line for a cab or rental.
Plan Extra Time
The traffic around LA is some of the worst you probably are ever going to experience. Due to this, you always need to plan for extra transportation time. It might help to discuss the commute with the concierge at the hotel, as they can help you with how long it might take in traffic. This way, you know how much extra time to add into your preparations before heading out to the meeting location. Of course, being able to rent out a room as close to your meeting spot as possible is nice, but outside of this, if you do have an extended commute, always plan on the side of caution.
Dress to Impress
One of the great features about LA is the fact that the weather is almost always perfect. Rarely does it rain, and there usually isn’t any humidity in the air either. This way, you can wear what you want to the meeting. This, in turn, is going to help you wear the best clothing you have to your meeting in order to impress the other side of the business trip. While you don’t have to go over the top with your dress, you don’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable due to the temperature or the weather.
Business travel around LA is no different than any other major city, although you always need to prepare for delays, as it is always possible, no matter where you are or where the set up business meeting is ultimately located.
