Composed of a diverse group of professionals bearing decades of industry experience, the convention sales and services team at New Orleans & Company works years in advance to bring conventions, meetings and events to the city. Stephanie Turner, Senior Vice President of Convention Sales & Strategies, positions her department as a full-service operation, working with clients throughout the sourcing, planning, attendance-building and hosting stages. In effectively marketing New Orleans itself as the destination to potential meeting professionals and attendees, every facet of the city’s hospitality industry – and Louisiana’s entire economy – is benefited by the events.

“New Orleans & Company touches so much of the community, including a range of small businesses that benefit from the meetings industry, and builds up the city at large,” says Stephanie. A city that’s “Built to Host,” New Orleans’ compact footprint and robust lodging creates an electric, exciting atmosphere during meetings that can be felt throughout the city. The revelation of new science, new technologies, and products are the catalysts of moving commerce forward. It is in these settings where innovation moves business forward globally. When we come together, we find common purpose, bringing us confidence that we can make the world a better place,” says Stephanie.  //  2020 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans
