The Greater New Orleans Region is again becoming a top contender in the areas of industrial development, trade and transportation, banking, sports, digital media, entrepreneurship and tourism. Whether it is large corporations merging with local companies to create regional powerhouses, creating a turn-key platform for entrepreneurs to bring their visions to fruition, or hosting prestigious sporting events like Super Bowl XLVII or the NCAA Final Four, the New Orleans region seems to be on the winning track. A positive spotlight is again shining on our region. Our perseverance, creativity and collaborative focus are only a few of the secrets of success that is putting the New Orleans economy on the road to victory.
