Making good on a promise to seek funding for a new Valley tourism bureau, City Councilman Joel Wachs introduced a motion Tuesday that asks city staff to find a way to increase promotion of Valley locations to visitors. At the heart of the issue is whether the Valley receives its fair share of the promotion and attention from the city-sanctioned Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau.

To entice two international linguists societies to hold their 1999 conventions in Los Angeles, city officials put on an exquisite evening of fine food and a literary program, featuring Ray Bradbury at the Central Library. Illinois professor Allan A. Metcalf, who had flown in from the American Council of Learned Societies to inspect Los Angeles as a possible venue for the joint meetings of the Linguistic Society of America and American Dialect Society, was impressed.

With less than four months to go until the end of his fifth and final term, Mayor Tom Bradley and several other city officials plan to embark Friday on a $270,000, four-city tour of Europe to promote tourism and trade with Los Angeles. Bradley called his tour with seven other officials "vitally important" to counteract negative images of the city from last spring's riots.

It's official. The Greater Los Angeles Visitors and Convention Bureau is now the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau. What does all this mean? Not too much, as it turns out. The title was changed to be more consistent with other bureaus, the nonprofit tourism and convention promoter noted. "The name change does not reflect any change in marketing thrust or decreased interest in promoting and serving members outside the Los Angeles city limits," President Bill F. Miller said.

Optimistic by nature and necessity, Los Angeles' tourism and convention industry already is putting its own spin on last week's deadly earthquake, combatting stark media images of wrecked freeways and tent cities with a global blitz of feel-good faxes and phone calls. The fear in tourism circles is that news stories and television pictures of yet another Southern California disaster could cause more damage than the quake itself to an industry worth an estimated $8.

East Los Angeles, Koreatown, Pico-Union and South-Central are not often powerful magnets for out-of-town visitors coming to Los Angeles. But that would change if the makers of a new video succeed in a fledgling campaign touting Central City neighborhoods to tourists otherwise headed to just Beverly Hills and Malibu.

For Madeline Janis-Aparico, the morning commute to work often takes on the flavor of a trip around the world. The short drive from her Crenshaw district home to a downtown office building takes her past Korean shops and churches, Salvadoran pupuserias, Guatemalan bakeries, and businesses marked by signs in Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese. "In Los Angeles," Janis-Aparico is fond of saying, "you can experience the cultures of 80 countries in a half-hour drive."

Officials of the National Assn. of Broadcasters are considering canceling a major convention in Los Angeles because of their concerns about public safety in the city, an official of the city's Convention and Visitors Bureau said Tuesday. Cancellation of the event for radio broadcasters, scheduled for the Convention Center in September, 1994, would deprive the city of about 8,000 visitors and millions of dollars of revenue.
