DCI California Moves to West Hollywood
February 26, 2018
SoulCycle, smoothies and sun! These might be some of the first things that come to mind when imagining the new Los Angeles office of Development Counsellors International (DCI) on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. But don’t be mistaken by the panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills or the Andaz rooftop bar down the street – the LA office works even harder than they play.
Originally located on Miracle Mile in central LA, the team enjoyed being close to artistic landmarks such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Arts (LACMA) and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. However, the team recently expanded to six full-time staff members to accommodate the growing list of clients they serve, prompting the need for relocation.
“After the success of The California Collective, I’m pleased to see the office reach a new milestone as we advance our presence on America’s west coast,” says Karyl Leigh Barnes, President of DCI’s Tourism Practice.
The California Collective is a DCI public relations program designed exclusively for California DMOs. Now in its third year, the program has aligned an exceptional list of destinations including Berkeley, Buena Park, Huntington Beach, Greater Palm Springs, and Oakland. DCI also continues the agency’s longstanding relationship with Visit California, and over the years has worked with such destination brands as Chile, Long Beach and Seattle.
DCI now provides tourism research, public relations, digital marketing and travel trade representation services within our California office.
“We’re situated in ‘The Creative City,’ a global hub for entertainment, fashion and the arts, near Los Angeles icons including the Sunset Strip and Santa Monica Boulevard,” says Kimberly Miller, Director of DCI California. “Our new location will also connect with the tastemakers in media, lifestyle and travel who are helping to shape the future of our industry.”
The office also benefits from its proximity to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), so book the next flight over and come visit us in WeHo!
