Our New Orleans Sales Team

The Convention and Visitors Bureau's Tourism Sales Staff is a diverse group of industry professionals who are experts in all things New Orleans.  We will do everything required to meet your criteria, from selecting a hotel for your group to finding the perfect one-day excursion.  Want to hear from only two hotels? No problem.  Are your time and resources limited?  Let us help.

We are New Orleans experts, so we can quickly let you know about festivals or events taking place during the dates you request.  If you're looking for the best possible value, we can suggest less peak times of the year.

No one knows New Orleans better than our team, and that means finding the perfect program for your clients.
