Louisiana Meeting & Event Planning City Guide

Cajun food and music make most Louisiana meeting and event planning programs a success. The powerhouse of Louisiana meeting and event planning locations is, of course, New Orleans (which is also a top U.S. meeting site), characterized by the iconic French Quarter, graceful Garden District, hip Warehouse District, easily-accessible Kenner, oak-lined Carrollton and Lake Pontchartrain’s Metairie. When planning meetings and event in Louisiana, also consider destinations like Shreveport and Baton Rouge, which have been steadily adding to their meetings structure.
