Celebrate NOLA's 300th With Us!

As many of you know, this is a BIG year for NOLA. 2018 is the city's 300th Birthday and Team NOCCI has been tasked with planning many of the city's celebratory events. Earlier this Spring, we helped welcome gifts and dignitaries from Belgium and Monaco. The month of April is jam-packed with Tricentennial festivities, which means we are working around the clock to ensure this celebration is unforgettable for locals and visitors from across the globe. 

We love this city and we're so proud to work alongside the City of New Orleans and the 2018 NOLA Foundation to help produce some major events to ring in the city's 300th year. 

Here are some of the upcoming Tricentennial events that we're involved in... We hope to see you there!
