Rich history and unique cuisine, combined with a generous portion of classic southern hospitality, have made New Orleans one of IFT’s favorite cities. The conveniently located New Orleans Morial Convention Center, wide variety of well-appointed hotels, and diverse entertainment options make New Orleans a great place to do business, too.
Guests at our 2011 event will find everything they love about the city, plus some pleasant surprises. Recently remodeled hotels, new additions to the long list (more than 1,000) of exceptional local restaurants, a fully renovated convention center, and a rejuvenated French Quarter are sure to make your visit to the 2011 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo an exceptional experience. Check out the New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau’s special IFT welcome site, which includes an insider’s guide to the city, as well as great dining, entertainment, and cultural resources.
