The Los Angeles Consortium for Online Travel is an open group of Los Angeles-area online travel writers and professionals in the travel and tourism industry.

Organized by travel blogger (and L.A. area resident) Jennifer Miner, we look forward to celebrating our region with you!

The greater Los Angeles area is one of the most popular travel destinations in the U.S., with wide mountain valleys, famous theme parks, dozens of museums, gorgeous beaches, hiking trails with endless views, a huge melting pot of cultures, a vibrant culinary scene and more. It’s full of stories to tell and good works to support.

The goal of LACOT is two-fold: to connect writers with leisure and hospitality sectors in the vibrant Southern California online travel industry, and to try to do a little good along the way. Our aim is to meet about 6 times per year around town, form strong social and professional relationships, and support local non-profit organizations that have L.A.’s best interest at heart.


Please join us at LACOT!

    Hi Lacot,

    We have launched a local discovery website that you and your readers might be interested in, and wanted to share and perhaps get some your feedback. The site is aimed at people who like discovering new things about their city or travelers who want more of an inside look to their destination… things to do, places to go, activities to try, et. al. We also provide a way to pass recommendations to friends as well as a fully integrated booking and scheduling system.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about it. Or just let me know if you have any helpful feedback or suggestions.

    Thanks so much for your time,

    Carlos Nieto
