Building Infrastructure and Capacity for L.A.’s Next Wave of Tourism

In preparation for the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and the millions of visitors the event will bring, the city is developing a strategic plan that will address a wide range of anticipated needs to minimize the impact of increased tourism on residents. The plan will take into account transportation, walkability, and wayfinding for visitors, and will require coordination across 15 council districts, each of which have diverse resources and needs.

FUSE executive fellow Eric Rosen will work with the city to administer the strategic plan. He will also help explore the expansion of the Los Angeles Convention Center by brokering relationships with the Staples Center, Microsoft Theater, and nearby hotels, all of which may need improvements to host the Olympic events. Eric’s work will help the city prepare for the next wave of tourism and ensure a successful flow of visitors to the 2028 Olympics.
