“BIG EASY” LOCATION AND THEME = GREAT EVENTS

We are here to give you 4 good reasons why

1. This is for all you Jazz lovers

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival attracts approximately 400,000 people each year. The 2012 line up has recently been released, some of the feature artists include Mystikal and, most prominently, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band.

But if you’re really dreaming about New Orleans food, check out the New Orleans Roadfood Festival on March 23, 2012. In 2011, 40,000 eaters attended roadfoodfest – a foodie dream where you can sample over 50 legendary eats from Louisiana and all across America.

3. MARCH MADNESS
“Coming together is the beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is success.”

March Madness makes me think about the growing trend of using teams and the idea of cross functional collaboration to boost productivity, improve key business processes and in some cases, solve problems within corporations. Clear objectives, measurement and rewards should be set in place in order for teams to be effective and successful.  Leaders need to say “thank you”! Companies that recognize and reward their team’s efforts and achievements, build trust, strengthen loyalty and retain talented brand ambassadors.  Team rewards do not have to break the bank.  Rewards should be relevant to your theme, corporate personality and to the team member’s efforts.  If March Madness was the kick off theme for your task teams, ideas to consider would be referee jersey style apparel, whistles, inflatable basketballs and a Basketball trivia event.

 

Get in the Spirit – Plan your trip now and experience March Madness in person! March 31-April 2,
New Orleans will host the NCAA Men’s Final Four, offering basketball fans a series of events, all leading up to a championship game on April 2.
