Vibrant and unique, the French Quarter is the cultural hub of New Orleans and why the city is loved by so many. Every corner offers fun – from the raucous party atmosphere of Bourbon Street to the bohemian elegance of Royal Street. Restaurants, bars, music venues, boutique shops and even voodoo temples – the French Quarter has it all. The conference hotel, the Omni Royal Orleans, offers luxury in the perfect location in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter.

So come down to New Orleans where we’ll “Get Down To Business!”
