Let the Good Times Roll
in New Orleans

New Orleans – a unique blend of relaxed philosophy combined with the pulse of vibrant music, spicy cuisine and a rich mingling of French, African and American cultures – is a national gem. We're thrilled that the Big Easy will open its doors to the 2024 NFDA International Convention & Expo. If you've visited before, welcome back to the party; if you're a first-time guest, prepare to be amazed!

History buff? Don't miss the National WWII Museum or the St. Louis Cathedral. Love music and culture? New Orleans is the birthplace of traditional (Dixieland) jazz and home to countless musicians and artists.

But we can't talk about the Crescent City without focusing on the food. Tempt your taste buds on a trip down the Mississippi with Creole and Cajun dishes that delight your palate, beignets loaded with sweet goodness, and Hurricane cocktails – the beverage of record in New Orleans.

Your good times in New Orleans are limited only by the amount of time you have available, so plan to spend a few extra days so you can take it all in. With so much going on – day and night – you'll find it difficult to narrow down your choices. The sites, the sounds, and the flavors of the Big Easy will stimulate your mind and thrill your senses.
