ABOUT:

The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (MCCNO) is home to America's largest contiguous-space exhibit hall with 1.1 million sq. ft. of prime exhibit space plus 140 meeting rooms, 4,000-seat theater, 30,000 sq. ft. ballroom and a 60,300 sq. ft. divisible, column-free ballroom with 25,000 sq. ft. pre-function area.

MCCNO is the sixth largest convention facility in the nation and consistently ranks in the country’s top ten of facilities that hold the most conventions and tradeshows annually.

Convention Center District Development Project

Live, work and play on the Mississippi River! The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center has embarked on an ambitious new venture that will revitalize the City's riverfront. The project sits on 47-acres of land upriver from the existing facility.

New retail, residential and entertainment components will essentially create the newest neighborhood in this iconic 300-year-old city and connect the Warehouse/Arts District to the Central Business District and historic French Quarter creating a cohesive experience for visitors and residents.

 

 

Transportation Center

The multi-modal transportation center has opened at MCCNO. This is the first completed phase of the linear park development along Convention Center Boulevard. All buses, shuttles, taxis and ride-shares will pick-up and drop-off all passengers here improving public safety and convenience of residents, local commuters and event attendees by eliminating shuttles, taxis and ride-shares on the main roadway.

Pedestrian Park

Initial construction has begun to transform Convention Center Boulevard into a lushly landscaped public park. This new pedestrian park will span 7.5 acres along Convention Center Boulevard, featuring interactive water elements, live event spaces, public art installations and shaded gathering places. The park will also provide access to the multi-modal transportation hub and a safe pathway for meeting attendees, facility staff and residents to move up and down the Boulevard. This phase of the project is expected to reach completion in late 2020.

Headquarters Hotel

A new "headquarters" hotel attached at the upriver end of the facility – adjacent to Hall J – is a key element of the capital improvement plan. The new Omni Hotel will feature 1,200 rooms, 150,000 square feet of meeting and ballroom space, street level retail and restaurants, plus amenities including a rooftop pool, bar, fitness center and spa. The hotel is slated to break ground in 2021 and open early 2024.
