What's New, What's Next - New Orleans


Live, Work and Play on the Mississippi River! The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is embarking on an ambitious new venture that will revitalize the City’s riverfront. The Convention Center District Development Project, situated on 47 acres upriver from the Center,  calls for a mixed-use development including a new “headquarters” hotel needed to accommodate the current demands from meetings and conventions and the projected increase in visitors to the city leading up to its 300th anniversary in 2018.
