COURT HISTORY GRAPHIC PANELS
The Honorable Mary Ann Vial Lemmon and historian John Magill chaired and curated, respectively, “Transient Justice,” a continuation of the court history exhibition at the Hale Boggs Federal Building in New Orleans, LA. The installation uses freestanding graphic panels to educate viewers on the 10 sites of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana prior to the dedication of the courthouse in 1976. Moreover, our first collaboration with the Association from 2018 entitled “Jackson’s Bodyguard,” uses the same style panels. Therefore, the interior looks cohesive for our client.
RENTAL KIOSKS MAKE EVENTS EZ
Ez Events, Inc. hosted an event at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside and requested rental kiosks for training sessions. With this purpose in mind, we designed customized kiosks that connect laptops to video monitors, providing interactive, one-on-one training areas. The kiosks also stored cords, brochures and miscellaneous exhibitor items.
In addition to rental displays, we offer rental kiosks in a variety of shapes and sizes, perfect for your next event. Speak to a team member today to reserve.
We love helping our customers show off their brands at trade shows and events. It’s equally fun when we are able to show off our own! Today we are exhibiting at the 2018 Connections: the Corporate Planning Expo at the New Orleans Convention Center. We brought our 10-ft portable display, banner stand, case to counter conversion and monitor stand with us. The best part? Our one-woman team could set it up all on her own. For example, the portable display fits right into the case to counter conversion. So easy!
NOMCVB’S REBRAND TO NEW ORLEANS & CO. CELEBRATES PEOPLE & CULTURE
Introducing New Orleans & Company
May 16th, 2018 was a special day for New Orleans and our Synergy team. We attended the brand launch party of one of the city’s most influential organizations. The New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau became New Orleans & Company. The New Orleans tourism marketing organization’s rebrand was the first in six decades and timely as we honored New Orleans’ Tricentennial.
The Meaning Behind the Rebrand
After rousing musical performances from Black Magic Drumline and the Victory Belles, New Orleans & Company President and CEO Stephan Perry revealed the new name and its meaning. “Company” refers to enterprise but also to the city’s warm and hospitable culture. Perry stated, “We believe that our culture is our greatest strength and […] the people of New Orleans create that culture.” The inclusive rebrand aims to represent the city’s residents, thousands of tourism industry employees and visitors.
Following the announcement of New Orleans & Company’s new brand, we took to the streets for a celebratory second line. We paraded our way through the French Quarter to the sounds of the Young PinStripe Brass Band. We danced alongside Mardi Gras Indians and almost bumped into stilt-walkers as we waved our New Orleans & Company handkerchiefs. Finally, the festivities concluded at the Steamboat Natchez with a champagne toast alongside the Mississippi River.
The Importance of Tourism Marketing
After the event we mused about why New Orleans is so alluring to visitors from around the globe. We realized that in today’s independent world, our “Do Whatcha Wanna” lifestyle brings people together (Rebirth Brass Band, 1997). At the launch party, Gregory Rusovich, CEO Transoceanic Development and New Orleans & Company’s 2018 Chairman of the Board explained that “New Orleans is the most authentic city in the world because of our unique culture. That’s the reason why millions visit each year.” And as Perry emphasized, culture exists because of the people. So in honor of New Orleans’ 300th birthday, we celebrate New Orleans & Company and the citizens who made this city great in the past, present and future.
