During President Ma’s most recent trip to Los Angeles in August 2013, the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City hotel was honored to host a banquet for him. Arriving on our red carpet, under the veil of flashing media camera lights, the President was escorted into our hotel ballroom for a dinner in his honor. With members of his staff, local and state representatives, the evening was a success. President Ma’s time was cut short due to a typhoon threatening his island. We look forward to welcoming him again on his next visit to Los Angeles.
