Convention Facilities

Whether it's just a couple dozen people or a convention with tens of thousands, New Orleans can host just about any meeting. The city's world-class convention facilities offer flexible choices with varying levels of square footage, services and amenities.

The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is regularly voted one of the nation's top facilities by meeting planners. Recent renovations have made it one of the most technologically advanced and flexible convention centers in the United States.  Boasting more than one million square feet of exhibit space, 140 meeting rooms and a 4,000-seat auditorium, the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is one of the most technologically advanced centers in the nation.

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome has also undergone a major transformation which includes redesigned Club Lounges, additional escalator access and a new outer surface.  Other convention facilities in the area include the Pontchartrain Center and the New Orleans Arena.

New Orleans backs up its diverse venues with a robust infrastructure and more than 35,000 hotel rooms. And because meeting planners can always use a helping hand, the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau can provide the tools, resources and assistance that you need.
