New Orleans Info
The 21st Annual Gulf of Mexico Deepwater Technical Symposium wants to welcome all our visitors to the magical city of New Orleans. Here in the birthplace of Jazz the culture is as diverse as the gumbo. It's a city where the music is life, food is a religion, every building is painted rich with history, and every local has got a story to tell. Welcome to the "Big Easy", and LAISSEZ LE BONS TEMPS ROULER! (Let the good times roll!)
