The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center encourages, at every opportunity, the maximum employment of local vendors for the acquisition of goods and services in the Convention Center’s business operations. It is the further policy and goal to enhance the business opportunities for small and emerging businesses. Toward that end, the Convention Center makes a commitment to create easy access to the business opportunities that it offers to those vendors. The Convention Center strongly urges all its vendors to make a commitment, likewise, to enhance those opportunities.
The 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.
