Headed to Mobile World Congress Americas?

There’s so much to see and do around this year’s venue—The LA Convention Center—in DTLA, and we know you’ll have your mobile phone in hand to take a few photos, so if you have a little time to catch some sights, let us be your guide!

Walt Disney Concert Hall. If music is your thing, check out the architecturally renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall, home of the LA Philharmonic. It’s one of the most photographed locations in all of LA thanks to its Frank Gehry-designed curved steel walls. And to make the experience even more mobile, download the LA Phil app to learn more about events at the Hall.

MOCA & The Broad. You’re actually more of an art lover? Well then, the Museum of Contemporary Art or The Broad might be up your alley. The Broad is currently home to two Yayoi Kasuma Infinity Mirror Rooms, which are highly phone photographable, just ask Instagram. The Broad also offers a mobile app, which can help you manage your tickets on the go or provide an in-depth look at some of the museum’s works via audio tour.

Bradbury Building. For a bit of “Old LA” culture, be sure to snap some photos of the Bradbury Building’s iconic interior. The building is a bit of a screen stealer, so prepare beforehand by watching it—on your mobile device—take a star turn in everything from Blade Runner to 500 Days of Summer, and even a Justin Timberlake/Chris Stapleton music video.

Angel’s Flight. Or ride Angel’s Flight Railway, a downtown landmark since 1901. While the ride is only 298 feet, the video you stream while aboard will last a lifetime.

Grand Central Market. Another grand dame of DTLA is the Grand Central Market, a city institution since 1917. The market is home to traditional market fare, as well as James Beard-nominated chefs. If you’re known for taking photos of your food, this is the place for you.

So if there is a break in your show schedule, get on out and explore what Downtown LA has to offer and don’t forget to share your favorite parts of #MWCA18 and DTLA with us on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn with #mobilemoments.
