Welcome to New Orleans!

When visiting the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, your experience here will be anything but regular and unremarkable.  At our convention center, you will be stepping into a new world and culture steeped in tradition that is like no other anywhere!  Steeped in the history and unique culture of New Orleans, you will find our smiles are brighter and our laughs heartier. You will hear the sweet sounds of a live jazz band when you’re walking from meeting to meeting, and you can’t help but notice the famous southern hospitality of our staff and the incredible taste of our home-grown, world-class cuisine.

With 1.1 million square feet of prime, contiguous exhibit space, the award winning New Orleans Ernest N. Morial 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 world famous French Quarter, our architecturally significant and distinct neighborhoods, and the iconic Mississippi River are just minutes from our doorstep.  Once your work day is done, you can enjoy the truly festive atmosphere of New Orleans – one of the most celebrated cities in all the world!  Home to the best cuisine and restaurants in the country, the most talented musicians, incredible museums, and historic landmarks, there’s always a life-long memory to be made around every corner.

New Orleans isn’t just a location for a business trip… it’s the place where lasting memories are made and where you’ll have an experience that you’ll never forget!
