New Orleans only turns 300 once, and when you’re throwing a party that big, you want to ensure you’ve got the right event and meeting planners for the job. As the premier event planning company in New Orleans, NOCCI (New Orleans Convention Company, Inc.) welcomed the task, assisting Mayor Landrieu, the City of New Orleans, and the 2018 NOLA Commission in producing numerous events across the International Tricentennial Weekend.

Founded by Dottie Belletto, President & CEO, NOCCI has benefitted from the thirty-year leadership of an entrepreneur whose ideas and innovations have been embraced and admired in the hospitality industry. NOCCI excels at a wide spectrum of services ranging from creative event planning of multi-location conferences and summits to multi-day extravaganzas, transportation, registration, and total meeting management.

NOCCI’s experienced planners and client-centered approach have earned the company the respect of a diverse, prestigious clientele including figures such as the Dalai Lama, Archbishop of Canterbury, and several U.S. presidents, in addition to organizations and corporations worldwide. In 2017, NOCCI elevated the Bayou Classic to the #1 most attended HBCU Classic and the #1 most attended football game out of the Top 35 FCS games played. NOCCI proudly supports local nonprofits through services and sponsorships.
