At the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, we support the purchase of goods and services from small businesses in our community. Here, we refer to a Small Business as a business entity that has a Small Entrepreneurship (SE)/Hudson Initiative Certification from the Department of Louisiana Economic Development (LED). If you are a Hudson-certified small business, please include a copy of your certification with your submission.
If your business is not currently certified, and is interested in certification, visit the Louisiana Economic Development website at ledsmallbiz.com or contact the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Purchasing Department at (504) 582-3035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Small and Emerging Business Advisory Council (More information coming soon)
The Small & Emerging Businesses Advisory Council is an informal group of civic and business leaders charged primarily with the effort to help expand the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center’s outreach to small and emerging businesses through community engagement initiatives and to advise The Authority on matters that would assist certified small and emerging businesses in conducting business with the Center.
