National Companies Chooses New Orleans in 2006!

Despite the inaccurate news coverage of the condition of downtown New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, National Companies has committed to bringing nearly 3500 of their independent sales representatives to New Orleans for the Grand National Convention October 5 – 8, 2006.

National Companies is well aware of the continued struggles and challenges many Louisiana residents are faced with in attempt to bring their homes and lives back to some state of normalcy. It will still be months of unified, continuous efforts to repair and replace homes and property.

National Companies’ credo is “all about people”; not just those associated with their company, but all the people in this wonderful country. They are committed to enriching the lives of all of independent marketing directors, staff and families, but it does not stop there. They also believe in aiding a helping hand to those in need or those less fortunate.

"The convention trade and tourism are two very crucial components to the economic health of New Orleans. Although there are many other venues that were available to us across the country, New Orleans and its great people is simply the best choice," said Lynda M. Davis, vice president and COO of National Companies, Inc. "Conventions generate jobs and income; two critical needs after a natural disaster. It is truly our hope that our small contribution to the economy of this historic city will help to raise the awareness of others to follow our footsteps and bring their business back to this fine city."

"I personally toured the city and the French Quarter on February 24, 2006, and was pleasantly surprised to see a clean, safe and fully functioning New Orleans. Our convention is not until the fall of this year, and yet I would not hesitate in bringing our people to New Orleans tomorrow!"

"They say, 'You can’t keep a good man down'! The New Orleans residents have proven that in many stellar ways! Not even Katrina could rob these fine folks of their rich culture, dedication to their heritage and love for the fine city of New Orleans!"

"Hope to see you in New Orleans!"
