The best reason to meet in New Orleans may be because it’s, well, New Orleans. Unlike any other North American city, New Orleans inspires and intrigues. The birthplace of jazz, home to some of the greatest restaurants (and service) in the world, an oasis of history and charm on the Mississippi, New Orleans is all that and more... and that is why more associations and corporations set attendance records here in the Crescent City than any other place
