2016 National Travel and Tourism Week- May 1-7, 2016 

The National Travel and Tourism Week Parade and Industry Toast was held on May 3, 2016 and was one of our most successful years to date! 

Industry employees joined the parade with their company banners, signs, umbrellas, second line napkins, etc. The parade featured a brass band, Mardi Gras float, Mr. Okra, costumed revelers including stilt walkers, Krewe of the Rolling Elvi, and local ladies' marching groups.  Prizes were awarded to both individuals and businesses for best costume, most spirited, most participants and most branded.  

The parade concluded with a "toast" from our President and CEO, Stephen Perry, Chairman of the Board and General Manager of The Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, Jim Cook, and Lt. Governor Billy Nunguesser.  CLICK HERE to enjoy the photos that were captured that day.
