What will the new new Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District mean for Manhattan Beach and the South Bay? An economic forum sponsored by the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce will explore the ramifications.

The LASED is currently under construction in Inglewood. By 2020, the stadium home of the Rams and the Chargers will be complete. It will also play host to Super Bowl LVI (2022), and to the LA 2028 Summer Olympics opening and closing ceremonies.

- A 6,000-seat performing arts venue
- 780,000 square feet of office space
- 890,000 square feet of retail space
- 300 hotel rooms
- 2,500 modern residences
- Approximately 25 acres of public parks, open space, pedestrian walkways and bicycle paths
- Family and fine dining
- State-of-the-art event, conference and meeting space
Speakers at the forum will include Chris Hibbs, CRO of LA Stadium & Entertainment District and Russ Simons, SVP of Facilities for LASED; and Steve Napolitano, Mayor of Manhattan Beach and former Senior Deputy to the former LA County Supervisor Don Knabe.
Attendees will have the opportunity to receive special stadium seat license pricing and a chance to win a football, autographed by Marshall Faulk. Register for the event here.
