New Orleans is where it’s at during the first weekend of August! It’s hot here, but the air conditioning will be on at full force at the 62nd Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality EXPO at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. And don’t worry about breaking a sweat getting to the show, we have designated shuttles to get you to and from the host hotel with minimum effort and it’s complimentary.
The EXPO boosts hundreds of companies that supply the restaurant industry. Think of it one giant shopping mall featuring everything you need to run your restaurant successfully. You can also learn a thing or two by taking a seat in the IDEA ZONE, a series of express presentations with topics ranging from designing menus to deliver profits, the basics of financial success, building an awesome online reputation, and more. Rest your feet and gain some valuable knowledge at the same time.
With special room rates of just $104 a night at our host hotel—the Hilton New Orleans Riverside—and four complimentary passes to the EXPO if you are a LRA restaurant member, you can afford to take advantage of all the wonders New Orleans has to offer.
Round out your trip to the Crescent City during EXPO weekend with magnificent dinners out at our world-class restaurants and imbibe at some of the city’s most fabulous cocktail bars. Take a few hours here and there to visit attractions like art and history museums, the Audubon Insectarium or Aquarium, take a walk down Royal Street and pop in and out of countless galleries or hop on the live oak tree-lined St. Charles Ave. street car and see elegant mansions of yesteryear.
New Orleans has it all for you August 8-10, 2015. What are you waiting for?
