New Orleans Meeting Planners

We know all about how meeting success stories start

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.

We know how to get things rollin’ on the river. Recent innovation and a rich entrepreneurial ecosystem have earned the city the nickname, the Silicon Bayou. Plus, has named us the "Coolest Start-up City in America,” and says we’re the No. 1 "biggest brain magnet.” Between beignets, we get down to business.

Here you don’t just get lanyards at the registration table – you get Mardi Gras beads.  Meet and greets have a jazz beat. There’s nothing like a jazz brunch with a brass band and a second line parade to set the heart beating for an energizing day ahead. Our culture is real and as rich as our andouille and crab gumbo.

Between sessions, pack your Chuck Taylors and get ready to hit our cobble-stoned streets running. Get your fill of James Beard award-winning cuisine. Soak up our art, architecture and music. Breakout sessions here might include Cajun and Creole cooking classes, a cocktail walking tour, or a couple of hours at an Indy style racing track where they can take a Ferrari or Lamborghini out for a spin. After the sun goes down, you can network into the night on Bourbon or Frenchmen streets. In this city, we get down to business then we get down. And don’t hesitate if your spouse or roommate wants to come along for the trip. It’s New Orleans. Like a po-boy, this city is better shared.

Getting jazzed? Us, too. Give us a call, y’all. New Orleans is better in person and so is the meeting planning experience. Your gathering begins with us.
