Small businesses are the foundation to local economies bringing growth and innovation to the community in which they live and work. That’s why the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is committed to increasing the business opportunities for our community’s small and emerging businesses (SEB).

The Convention Center aims to support New Orleans’ business community by encouraging the hiring of local vendors for the purchase of goods and services. We’ve created easy access to new business opportunities through our online registration, and we strongly urge all vendors to register your business with the Convention Center today.

The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center’s Contract and Purchasing Departments are responsible for the procurement of goods and services. Purchases are determined by competitive bidding, and all qualified vendors are encouraged to participate in the bidding process.
