Speaking Of New Orleans ...

"Throughout the course of my career I have had the pleasure of working with a number of top tier destinations. None have matched the level of service and professionalism that we experienced during the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) this past April. The city of New Orleans, the convention center, hotel/hospitality community and the staff of the NOCVB were all gracious hosts for our event. The feedback from the National Kitchen and Bath Association membership, our attendee community and exhibitors have echoed this same sentiment. Our experience was top notch and I would recommend this destination to any event organizer interested in a one of a kind event experience. Thank you New Orleans!"

Brian Pagel Vice President Kitchen and Bath Association

"After hosting the CIES 2013 conference in New Orleans, we have heard nothing but positive feedback about the hotel, the offsite venues and the city itself from our attendees. The assistance the CVB provided us with through every step of the way was priceless and helped to ensure a successful conference. We also enjoyed the "local flare" that your onsite helpers brought to our conference. They were all delightful to work with as well as knowledgeable and were flexible on their duties and work hours as needed. Overall, NOLA was the perfect venue for this conference!"

Brandi Host Senior Conferenc Coordinator Comparative & International Education Society

"As an independent meeting planner for over 23 years, I have frequently worked with CVB's in cities throughout the US. Although most are helpful, I was very impressed with the New Orleans CVB, even though my group was only 80 attendees. From my very first contact, straight though the meeting, everyone at the CVB went above and beyond to help me out, as I was not very familiar with New Orleans and only had been there a few times many years ago. During my two site visits, they gave me their full attention and escorted me around the city, making sure I had all the information I needed before arriving and during my stay. The meeting was most successful, thanks to all the assistance and guidance I received from the members of the NOCVB. As a result, I would definitely bring other groups to the city, should the occasion arise."

Nancy Church, CMP President Saint Gobian Corporation

"We appreciate the creative marketing and all the ideas that came from the CVB on how to build attendance. Your idea to bring small groups and meetings to New Orleans paid off. You did an outstanding job!"
