The Big Easy headed north this week, as representatives from New Orleans’ tourism sector met with Canadian travel partners in Toronto during an appreciation dinner.

A select group of travel professionals and media met with representatives from the New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau and hotel partners The Maison Dupuy and Wyndham New Orleans French Quarter, two unique properties located in the city’s historic French Quarter.

Maria Manzella, director of tourism, New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau, told those gathered that the city, fresh from hosting the 2016 IPW travel show, has a number of developments and milestones in store for the coming years, she said.

Most notably, the city is preparing for its tricentennial in 2018, with preparations already underway for the auspicious date. Manzella also updated attendees on the ongoing expansion project at Louis Armstrong International Airport, which is seeing an expansion of the North Terminal. The airport project is slated to conclude in October 2018.
