New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) Welcomes Jennifer Day as Director of Communications and Public Relations
New addition brings vast film industry experience to the New Orleans CVB

NEW ORLEANS – June 2, 2010 The New Orleans CVB is announcing that Jennifer Day has joined their award-winning staff as Director of Communications and Public Relations. Through her role at the New Orleans CVB, Day will work closely with the local community and media to promote the city’s hospitality industry as well as local sporting and cultural events.

During her three consecutive years at the New Orleans Office of Film and Video, the New Orleans film industry cultivated record-breaking levels of production activity with Day working on roughly 71 major projects, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, 12 Rounds and Treme, with a combined Louisiana spend of $600 million.

In addition to her work with the feature film industry, Day has extensive experience assisting crews on “earned media” projects such as the Oprah Winfrey Show, Top Chef, Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She has also cultivated print coverage for the city in The New York Times, USA Today, The Associated Press, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

“Jennifer is the perfect addition to the New Orleans CVB and will expand our-award winning team of public relations professionals charged with protecting the New Orleans hospitality industry’s reputation and assisting with media locally, nationally and internationally,” said Kelly Schulz, vice president of communications and public relations for the New Orleans CVB. “With her experience garnered from the Office of Film and Video, Jennifer will add an important element of insight into the local film industry, which has grown to be one of the largest industries in the state of Louisiana. We are excited to welcome her to our team.”

Day will report to Schulz where she will serve with her as a spokesperson for the CVB and the hospitality industry. Day was preceded by Mary Beth Romig, who is now the Director of Public Relations and Special Projects for Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Day graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Illinois State University. She then moved to New Orleans where she received a Master of Arts at Tulane University in Sociology. Day then began her work with New Orleans city government in 2006 when she was awarded Mayoral Fellowship in the Office of Economic Development in the Arts and Entertainment division. In 2007, she was promoted to Director for the Office of Film and Video.

The New Orleans CVB is the driving catalyst for New Orleans’ largest industry, strategically leading national and international marketing, public relations and visitor services efforts that attract millions of visitors, events, conventions and festivals that produce billions of dollars of economic growth, tens of thousands of jobs, and hundreds of millions of taxes for the state and city. Recognized as one of the top five in the United States, the CVB raises private capital and utilizes one percent of New Orleans hotel tax as its primary funding sources to drive this powerful industry.
