Additional Information

Historical and cultural attractions are also a huge draw here. Meeting goers can see where Tennessee Williams wrote his masterpieces in the French Quarter. They can learn about Marie Therese Coincoin, a former slave who came to own Melrose Plantation. They can be regaled by stories of the flamboyant Governor Huey Long, the “Kingfish.” And if your attendees like the great outdoors, look no further. If you’ve ever seen the Atchafalaya Swamp at sunset or if you’ve ever sat in a duck blind on Lake Lery at dawn, you know Louisiana deserves the moniker “Sportsman’s Paradise.” For fishing, hiking, camping, hunting, bicycling, canoeing or birding, this is the spot. And our climate makes us the perfect place for golf year-round. Louisiana boasts The Audubon Golf Trail, 12 world-class courses all across the state. When your group meets in Louisiana, they may not remember every word the keynote speaker said, but they’ll never forget their waiter. Or the trumpet player. Or the alligator they saw sunning itself on the swamp tour. Find out more today.
