Plan Your Travel

By Plane

Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) is Louisiana's primary commercial airport serving over 80 percent of all passengers flying into the state. Located 12.2 miles from the Convention Center, there are options for shuttles, taxis, and public transport services.

By Car

Located in the heart of New Orleans, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is easily accessible from I-10. Ample parking is available at the Convention Center for a daily fee. Overnight parking is prohibited.

By Public Transport

Shuttle services are available from the airport, transport to and from hotels, and even to the Convention Center. New Orleans’ streetcar system is a charming way to explore the city, and you can easily rent bikes, hop a bus, take a ferry, or call a pedicab, taxi, or car service.

Remember when booking your flight...

Sure, we’ll be in a hurry to get back home and put all our newly-acquired insights to work. But keep in mind that the tradeshow closes at 3 p.m. on February 27, and we’ve got a jam-packed program to the very end. Be sure to stick around so you don’t miss a thing…heck, maybe Mardi Gras is on your bucket list, so tack a few extra days onto your trip and make it the most unforgettable work trip ever!
