Overview

Events held in New Orleans just aren’t the same as events held in other cities. Smiles are brighter. Handshakes are more energetic. Everyone is simply excited to be in one of the world’s most storied and culturally rich destinations. Traditional, old-time jazz music enlivens the soul, the cuisine is incomparable, and the city’s charm captivates.

The freshly renovated New Orleans Ernest N Morial Convention Center is an essential component of what makes the city’s major business events so successful. With 1.1 million square feet of contiguous exhibit space, the Convention Center is the sixth largest convention facility in the nation, and it consistently ranks in the country’s top ten of facilities that hold the most conventions and tradeshows annually.

The center has unique spaces to accommodate any meeting or special event. The New Orleans Theater is a versatile conference auditorium with a seating capacity of over 4,000. For elegant and intimate functions, the Maison VIP Dining Suite is perfect. For large events, The Great Hall, a 60,000 squart-foot, column-free ballroom with 25,000 square-foot, pre-function space, junior ballroom, rooftop terrace, indoor balcony, hotel-like appointments throughout.

Once the meetings are over, the city’s renowned restaurants and music clubs are a great way for visitors to relax and have some fun. The world-famous attractions of the French Quarter lay just steps away from the convention center, while the historic St. Charles streetcar line runs past the elegant homes of the Garden District. The excitement of New Orleans transforms an obligatory business trip into an unexpected experience.
