Meetings & Groups

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) at Bayou Barn and see alligators up close as they glide through the swamp. We work hard and play hard here in Jefferson Parish and our nightlife will not disappoint! We are the shopping destination for Louisiana from charming boutiques to major malls. Did someone mention food? Food is an art form here, from charbroiled oysters and red beans and rice to BBQ shrimp and poboys, no one goes home hungry!
