Meeting Planners

Meeting planners know it isn’t hard to attract people to an event taking place in New Orleans. But the appeal of the Crescent City aside, the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center offers everything a meeting planner needs to stage a successful event.  In recent years, the Center has undergone $142 million in upgrades and renovations including new furnishings, new flooring, an updated look, and facility-wide enhancements to provide a bright and engaging contemporary environment.

In 2013, the Convention Center debuted The Great Hall, a 60,300 sq.ft. divisible, column-free ballroom with 25,400 sq.ft. multi-use pre-function space, 4,660 sq.ft. Rivergate Room, 3,420 sq.ft. rooftop terrace, and hotel-like appointments throughout.  In addition, the Convention Center’s main entrance was completely redone, and the addition of a pedestrian plaza provides a grand sense of arrival to all attendees and serves as a more seamless connection to New Orleans’s famous walkable hotel packages.

The facility also boasts:

  • Ample meeting space – The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center encompasses 3.1 million square feet including 140 meeting rooms, 11 combinable exhibit halls, a 60,300 sq.ft. column-free Great Hall, 36,448 sq.ft. La Nouvelle Orleans ballroom, and the 4,000-seat New Orleans Theater.
  • Modern technology – iCove stations for internet access; lightning-fast 10G Internet backbone and digital signage and key card access for meeting rooms. With the latest in audio and video production technology, an indoor cellular rf/repeater phone network that is supported by all major carriers, an 800 MHz 2-way radio system, satellite uplinks and downlinks, and more, the Convention Center can meet a meeting planner’s most demanding technological requirements.
  • Business center – Either self-service or full-service depending on your needs, our UPS Store offers flexible hours and a complete range of business services, from shipping to high-volume copying to graphic design.
