As Hollywood emerges from the throws of the pandemic, how are our businesses rebuilding and reimaging? The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has, and will continue, to convene hundreds of experts and leaders all committed to the objective of improving the state of Hollywood for all entities who are here and are interested in bringing their enterprise to Hollywood.
The Hollywood Economic Development Summit
The annual Summit supports the Chamber's Strategic Plan's goals "to advance a dynamic business climate and advocate for a robust business community through sustainable economic growth." The 2022 Summit will feature a keynote from Ted Sarandos, co-chief executive officer and chief content officer for Netflix, on "Why Hollywood is a Great Investment"; a small business roundtable to develop a road map on how to attract, retain and grow small business in Hollywood; Real Estate Development investment in light of law and order and recession challenges; International Consultants General on how to ensure that Hollywood is an investment destination for the world.
The past two decades have seen Hollywood grow from a blighted district to a thriving $5 billion economic engine for Los Angeles. It's taken commitment for the betterment of Hollywood. While we have serious challenges with the unhoused on our streets and closures as a result of the pandemic, Hollywood is on the upswing. We credit much of this progress to Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell. To keep our momentum going it's crucial that he be relected in November. He has the vision, the heart and know-how we need. DH
