Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
900 Convention Center Blvd.
New Orleans, LA 70130
Events held in New Orleans just aren’t the same as events held in other cities. Smiles are brighter. Handshakes are more energetic. Everyone is simply excited to be in one of the world’s most storied and culturally rich destinations. Traditional, old-time jazz music enlivens the soul, the cuisine is incomparable, and the city’s charm captivates.
The freshly renovated New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is an essential component of what makes the city’s major business events so successful. The 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.
Once the meetings are over, the city’s renowned restaurants and music clubs are a great way for visitors to relax and have some fun. The world-famous attractions of the French Quarter lay just steps away from the convention center, while the historic St. Charles streetcar line runs past the elegant homes of the Garden District. The excitement of New Orleans transforms an obligatory business trip into an unexpected experience.
Getting Around New Orleans
New Orleans is home to one of the world’s busiest ports, yet the city is remarkably compact and easy to navigate. Visitors are always pleasantly surprised to learn that many of the city’s attractions, accommodations and event venues are within walking distance of each other; in fact, “hoofing it” (either walking or hopping into a mule-drawn carriage) is a favorite means of transportation in the Crescent City.
But, if you prefer wheels to legs, New Orleans has a very accessible and reasonably priced public transportation system, too. It only costs $1.25 to take an RTA bus or one of the city’s famed streetcars, which travel the Riverfront and Canal Street. Where else can you actually ride on a historic landmark?
Of course, as one of the world’s top convention and meeting destinations, New Orleans also has a range of national car rental agencies as well as taxi and limousine services. A number of the city’s hotels and attractions offer free shuttle services, and there are a great variety of guided tours throughout the city and its neighborhoods.
“By land or by sea,” getting where you are going in New Orleans is half the fun. Riverboats go rollin’ on the river, just like they’ve done for more than a century. If street traffic is tight, you can always take the ferry across the river to historic Algiers Point.
Even the Louis Armstrong International Airport is convenient; just 15 miles from the Central Business District and French Quarter, it is a quick ride away, whether you go by bus, shuttle, taxi or limousine. If you come by Greyhound Bus or AMTRAK train, Union Terminal is centrally located and served by RTA buses, taxis and limos.
