The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce’s theme for the 2013 State of the City address will be “Santa Monica on the Move,” and will focus on the current issues impacting the business community.

Attendees will get a first look at the Exposition Light Rail Line making its way to Santa Monica in 2015, hear from newly-appointed Mayor Pam O’Connor and City Manager Rod Gould and get updates on all of the business districts, neighborhoods and projects from across the city, officials with the chamber said in a press release.

The American Film Market, which has called Santa Monica home for decades and attracts roughly 8,000 filmmakers, producers and others in the industry for eight days of networking and deal-making, will be presented with the Economic Excellence Award.

The State of the City event will be held Jan. 24 at 7 a.m. For more information or to purchase tickets go to or call (310) 393-9825.
