This year, the Experience New Orleans team attended the Hospitality Education and Network Association's yearly conference taking place from August 22nd – 24th, 2008.

At the conference, industry professionals had the opportunity to network amongst each other at the Hilton Pensacola Beach, unfortunately set to the backdrop of Hurricane Faye.

Of course, as there were a great many New Orleans professionals in attendance at the event, a little ol' hurricane was ensured not to mess up the festivities. Convention go-ers made sure to have fun during team building activities such as shoe decorating, poker and a Moulin Rouge themed closing reception.

The relaxed atmosphere created the perfect environment for industry professionals to get to know one another, with various raffle prizes and even an impromptu excursion to the wave runner convention next door.

The Experience New Orleans team had a great time, and looks forward to seeing everyone through out the year ,and during the 2009 Convention.
