Virtual TourFacility BrochureInformation about New OrleansEvents

The freshly renovated New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is an essential component of what makes the city’s major business events so successful. With 1.1 million square feet of contiguous exhibit space, the Convention Center is the sixth largest convention facility in the nation, and it consistently ranks in the country’s top ten of facilities that hold the most conventions and tradeshows annually. In 2013, the Convention Center debuted The Great Hall, a 60,300 sq.ft. divisible, column-free ballroom with 25,400 sq.ft. multi-use pre-function space, 4,660 sq.ft. Rivergate Room, 3,420 sq.ft. rooftop terrace, and hotel-like appointments throughout. In addition, the Convention Center’s main entrance was completely redone, and the addition of a pedestrian plaza provides a grand sense of arrival to all attendees and serves as a more seamless connection to New Orleans’s famous walkable hotel packages.

The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center encompasses 3.1 million square feet including 140 meeting rooms, 12 combinable exhibit halls, a 60,300 sq.ft. column-free Great Hall, 36,448 sq.ft. La Nouvelle Orleans ballroom, and the 4,000-seat New Orleans Theater.
