Last Thursday, Microsoft celebrated the opening of their brand new Technology Center in Los Angeles. The building was officiated with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring local officials, non-profit partners, and consumers.

The new center is a 21,000 square foot building that shows off the latest Microsoft has to offer for consumers and businesses. The Silicon Beach Technology Center helps customers and partners to “experience how [Microsoft’s] technologies enable them to seamlessly connect with colleagues all over the world.”

Visitors can check out the latest hardware and software on display from Microsoft, which includes the Nokia Lumia 1020, Windows 8 operating system, and the latest Surface and touchscreen devices. Microsoft hopes that those visiting the center and seeing what the company has to offer will be able to witness Microsoft “innovation [coming] to life.”

The new Los Angeles building joins other Microsoft Technology Center locations in the United States including Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Irvine, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Reston, and Silicon Valley. Microsoft also has nineteen other locations word-wide.
