Why Experience a New Orleans Trade Show?

Louisiana is well known for many things. There is the food, of course; the swamps that populate the state, teeming with interesting wildlife that range from egrets to alligators; the Saints, who play in the world-famous Superdome for every home game; Mardi Gras, where bead catching becomes a competitive sport; and of course, the many industry conventions that bring professionals together every year, which can overflow with exciting and dynamic exhibit booth rentals.

Louisiana is home to several different conference centers and has slowly but surely become a popular state for various national and international events, trade shows, and conventions. Perhaps most famously are the conferences that take place in New Orleans, the Paris of the South. Cardinal Expo has become the premier source for trade show displays New Orleans exhibitors and convention attendees love.

As the cultural hub of Louisiana and the home of over 1 million residents, New Orleans is the perfect place to showcase your exhibit. The Crescent City is one of the largest and most popular tourist destinations in the country and features two of the country’s largest and busiest shipping ports: the Port of New Orleans and the Port of South Louisiana. In fact, the Port of South Louisiana boasts the highest shipping volume in the entire Western Hemisphere.

New Orleans conferences, trade shows, and other professional events bring all types together, and you never know who you’ll be meeting that day. With Cardinal Expo’s exhibit booth rentals catching strangers’ eyes, you may find yourself suddenly having to entertain a new client or attending an impromptu gathering of other industry professionals after hours. You can have peace of mind knowing that while you’re focusing on building connections, we’re hard at work behind the scenes making trade show displays New Orleans will be wowed by.
