Jefferson Parish Meetings


Next door to New Orleans, Jefferson Parish is the perfect location to hold your meeting or event. With over 8,000 hotel rooms, an international airport, two convention centers and various venues from quaint and comfortable to big and bold, Jefferson Parish is ready to be the epicenter of your event.

Why Jefferson Parish?


Complementing our meeting venues and overnight accommodations is the culture; your attendees will have the time of their lives as they learn the Cajun two-step at a Fais Do Do (Cajun dance party) and see alligators up close as they glide through the swamp. We work hard and play hard here in Jefferson Parish.  We are the shopping destination for the region from charming boutiques to major malls. Did someone mention food? Food is an art form here, from the Jefferson Parish Louisiana Oyster Trail, where you can sample the delicacy a number ways from on the half shell, fried, or charbroiled to red beans and rice, BBQ shrimp and of course, po'boys...no one goes home hungry!

Jefferson plays host to conventions, meetings, reunions and tournaments in definite southern hospitality style. Let the Jefferson Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc. be a resource and make your planning easy!
