Laissez Le Bons Temps Roulez

Meetings in New Orleans, like everything else in this city, stay with you long after you’ve unpacked your carry-on. More than just meetings, they can be game-changing gatherings that inspire free-flowing ideas and forge deep connections.

At every event you attend after coming here, you’ll find yourself telling the person beside you at the airport or in the buffet line, “One time, in New Orleans …” And, chances are, they’ll counter back with their own New Orleans story – a tale of collaboration, disruption and reinvention.

A timeless city with a unique way of life, New Orleans is a journey and a celebration. Steeped in European traditions and Caribbean influences, the Big Easy calls curious minds to sweet sounds and savory aromas fueled by three hundred years of history. From the moment you arrive New Orleans will beckon your ears, allure your eyes and enchant your heart. Indulge your senses and explore. We invite you to follow the scent of gumbo floating out the kitchen window, foster a path that leads to the sounds of drums and a Blues guitar, create the route that welcomes you to a historic mansion or a hidden courtyard… We believe that our lagniappe – a little something extra – will stay with you, calling you back to discover the mystery behind our magical city. New Orleans is and will always be a picturesque metropolitan, a culturally rich haven and an authentic experience.
