NEW ORLEANS-September 14, 2011-Subscribers to Corporate & Incentive Travel and Association Conventions & Facilities magazines have once again recognized the New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau for superior customer service through the publications' annual awards, the "Award of Excellence" and the "Distinctive Achievement Award."
