The Best of New Orleans: Shopping

By Justin Barisich, July 24, 2017

After you’ve eaten and drank as much as you can, walk it all off with some New Orleans shopping, ranging from eclectic shops to luxury stores. Then start all over again tomorrow.

First-Timers

Peaches carries everything a regular record store would, with the addition of a bunch of local music—including New Orleans rap, bounce, jazz, brass, traditional and zydeco artists. Stop in and bring some of that NOLA sound back home with you.

Where Y’Art Gallery

Royal Street has long been home to New Orleans’ eclectic boutiques, world-class antique shops and art galleries. But what makes Where Y’Art stand out is the belief that art should be for everyone. They’ve built a community of local artists, craftsmen and designers to better connect artists with one another—and with buyers both near and far.

The Shops at Canal Placeshops at canal place new orleans shopping

Canal Street has been the place to go in New Orleans for high-end shopping, dining, entertainment and socializing since the 19th century. And today, The Shops at Canal Place uphold that tradition with three floors of luxury and boutique shopping—including Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany & Co. and Lululemon Athletica—in the heart of the city.

The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk

Overlooking the mighty Mississippi River in the center of the city, The Riverwalk is the nation’s first downtown outlet mall. With more than 70 stores and 25 restaurants, this recently renovated shopping center is anchored by Neiman Marcus Last Call and Nordstrom Rack.

Dirty Coast Press

It all began with a simple post-Katrina bumper sticker that simply read “Be a New Orleanian. Wherever You Are.” Dirty Coast Press struck a chord with diehard locals, and today the company prints hundreds of T-shirts, posters, socks and more to help everyone express their love for the city.

An unengaged audience is the worst nightmare for a panel. Planners can assist panelists by suggesting these techniques to connect to the audience.

See how a $20 million renovation imparted a design overhaul and changed MICE prospects for the 90-year-old Talbott Hotel in Chicago’s Gold Coast.

A strong relationship between a DMO and convention center is the backbone of a city that successfully earns meetings business.

To be a more effective negotiator, meeting planners will learn how hotels evaluate their businesses and manage their inventory of space, rates and dates.
