Come for the #LRAEXPO14, experience New Orleans like never before
New Orleans is the place to be during the first weekend of August! It’s hot here, but the air conditioning will be on at full force at the 61st Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality EXPO at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. And don’t worry about breaking a sweat getting to the show, we have designated shuttles to get you to and from the host hotel with minimum effort and it’s complimentary.
The EXPO boosts hundreds of companies that supply the restaurant industry. Think of it one giant shopping mall featuring everything you need to run your restaurant successfully. You can also learn a thing or two by taking a seat in the IDEA ZONE, a series of express presentations with topics ranging from promoting profits and preventing loss behind the bar to energy efficiency equipment to save you money, and more. Rest your feet and gain some valuable knowledge at the same time.
With special room rates of just $99 a night at our host hotel—the Hilton New Orleans Riverside—and four complimentary passes to the EXPO if you are a LRA restaurant member, you can afford to take advantage of all the wonders New Orleans has to offer.
