Los Angeles Travel Tips for Directors Attending the 2013 Leadership Conference
Many members of the UnitWise family, including a few of the Heroes, will be travelling to Los Angeles, CA for the Mary Kay Leadership Conference 2013. Navigating a new city can be difficult, so we have put together a list of some Travel Tips to help you get around LA !
If you didn't bring your Pink Cadillac to Los Angeles, or would like to avoid LA's infamous Rush Hour traffic, you can use their Metro Subway System. This is the most efficient & cost effective way to travel in such a big city, and most lines are open until the late hours of the night. Since the LA Convention Center is a central location in downtown LA, you will be able to catch a train to nearly any area of the city from one of the many Metro Stations nearby.

Where Am I?
Since most of your time will be spent at the Los Angeles Convention Center, you should know what's nearby. The Convention Center is positioned among some of the city's top attractions. The Staples Center is less than a stones throw away, as is the Nokia Theatre & L.A. Live. With these enormous venues so close together, there is always something going on. In fact, The People's Choice Awards was held during the first day of Leadership this year & several Mary Kay Directors have spotted various stars on their way to the red carpet.
