Neighborhood: Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.

The Convention Center
Jan 2020
It's the convention center, a big enclosed space for the big meetings. And this is a big convention town, so it is normally quite busy. But not all that pretty, just functional.

The biggest
Mar 2020
The NRECA convention was held here. This place is huge. The only problem was they were replacing the front entrance to the center. There were over 8000 of us attending but it was easy to get around.

Huge Venue
Mar 2020 • Business
Great staff, clean facilities but the front street construction really takes away from the experience right now with limiting where you can enter. More water bottle filling stations would be nice too but great options for any convention space needs!

Decent convention center
Dec 2019
I attend a lot of conventions and the Morial Center is a good place to attend. The biggest plus is the location. You can walk to most of the places you would like to see after hours. Lots of restaurants and hotels near by. The facility itself is fairly updated and of large enough size to hold a good convention. It is long and skinny in shape but don't let appearances deceive, it is large.

Large and spacious convention center in one of the best cities in the world
Nov 2019
Enjoyed a 4 day conference in this convention center. About 15 minute walk from the French Quarter. Next to the cruise ship dock and shopping mall. Very spacious and nice convention center. All my sessions and exhibit floor experiences went well. Staff are very friendly. Starbucks staff in the food court were a big disappointment. Two days in a row the food court did not seem to open for lunch. Good news is that there are plenty of nice places to eat a few blocks away.

AVERAGE VENUE
Nov 2019
First the streets were torn up but there was a dedicated traffic person to keep traffic flowing. The venue itself was ok, the escalators were roped off so you had to walk twice as far to get to your conference session.

Some good/some bad
Oct 2019 • Business
There were positives and negatives while I was here for a conference.

Positives: near hotels, near a mall,
and some restaurants

Negatives: Very long layout. This means a lot of walking. Construction was horrible. I don't feel they were ready for a huge conference.

If I had to sum it up, if I found out I had to attend another conference here, I would be slightly disappointed, not excited. I would say, overall, the positives and negatives neutralize each other.

If planning a conference, just triple check the construction plans.

Attended the American Academy of Pediatrics Convention. The interior is really beautiful and spacious. The parking is ok. Lots of construction around the area.
