2023 Spring Conference | May 2-4, 2023 | New Orleans, LA
New Orleans. The Big Easy.

It’s easy to love and hard to leave the Big Easy.

No matter the time of year, New Orleans welcomes visitors in a grand way to experience Caribbean, Spanish, French, and African cultures colliding in a brilliant explosion of flavors, emotions, and sounds. Music is everywhere, people live to eat, and every day is a party in the birthplace of jazz. The city is also home to Creole cuisine, centuries-old Spanish oak trees, and historic streetcars. With a unique combination of city life, swamp tours, festivals, cultural significance, and revelry during Mardi Gras, New Orleans has the perfect recipe to captivate everyone. Come explore it with SIGMA!

Hotel and Travel

Baronne Street Entrance

Waldorf Astoria Roosevelt New Orleans. History meets luxury, moments from Canal Street.
Operating as a hotel since 1893, the Waldorf Astoria Roosevelt Hotel building was once home to Louisiana’s legendary governor Huey P. Long. Today, the hotel features historic New Orleans memorabilia, a luxury spa, and a rooftop pool. Canal and Bourbon streets are around the corner, and The Roosevelt is within a mile of the French Quarter.

Weather
In early May, the weather in New Orleans is usually comfortable with early morning lows mostly in the mid to upper 60s F (18-21 C) and afternoon high temperatures mostly in the lower 80s F (27-28 C). You can’t rule out a stray shower, so packing an umbrella or rain jacket is advised.

Dining Guide
New Orleans has food and dining to please every palate. Few other towns feature so many award-winning restaurants, famous chefs or food festivals. The plates can be bone china or paper; the dining rooms can resemble a chateau or a roadhouse. It makes no difference. New Orleans serves up some of the most delicious food on the planet.

Don’t feel like venturing out? The Roosevelt offers three dining options: Domenica, which offers a local take on rustic Italian cuisine (lunch/dinner), Teddy’s Cafe, a cafe style outlet serving light fare (sandwiches, bagels, pastry) and PJs Coffee, and The Fountain Lounge, featuring live music, innovative cocktails, and small plates.

Things to Do
Whether this will be your first time to New Orleans or you’re a seasoned visitor, the city’s invigorating spirit is sure to inspire, captivate, and motivate you to jump in and see and as much as you can. With so many possibilities, narrowing the options can be a challenge. Think of it this way: divide how much time you have by what your priorities are – history, art, music, culture, and on and on – and then add in a little time for the spontaneous joy that is the Crescent City’s calling card and you have the perfect beginning for an amazing New Orleans experience.
