New Orleans launches new airport November 6

There has never been a better time to host a meeting or event in New Orleans. We’re reimagining the entire meeting experience starting with our world-class, billion-dollar terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport that opens November 6! And we’re not stopping there…

You already know what makes New Orleans a successful meeting destination—more than 26,000 hotel rooms, a walkable downtown, world-renowned cuisine, legendary music and an authentic culture that cannot be found anywhere else. But the new state-of-the-art airport terminal, additional hotel inventory, convention center capital improvements and 4.5 miles of riverfront developments – plus so many more new improvements – are reinventing the meeting experience. Take a new look at New Orleans, we can’t wait to welcome you!

The brand-new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) is opening on November 6! The long-awaited new facility will enhance the arrival experience with all of the modern technologies needed to ease the travel experience. Guests will immediately feel welcomed with the spirit and culture of the New Orleans region through local restaurants and shops that embody our unique culture. This is the first airport of its size in the U.S. to build a completely new facility in more than a decade!

Big Updates for the Memphis Convention Center

Work continues at the Memphis Convention Center even while the facility hosts major events. Local media was able to see progress since the last construction site visit in May.

Local news outlets in attendance were also provided details on a planned Front Street closure from Jackson to Poplar starting October 7th, running through May 1st. Phase I work is progressing as meeting rooms on the ground level near completion with carpet scheduled for installation in October.

The entire project is due to be complete in the Fall of 2020 with all funding coming through the hotel/motel tax and Tourism Development funds.
