01 Aug DMC Partner Spotlight | Accent DMC | New Orleans, LA
New Orleans is a captivating city with an undeniable allure. It is rich in history and culture, renowned for its culinary and musical achievements, revered for its distinctive architecture and celebrated for its revelry.
Because New Orleanians countdown to Carnival all year, it’s easy to forget that for convention attendees, Mardi Gras merriment can start the minute they arrive in the Crescent City. At ACCENT, we can create a unique, one of a kind experience to kick off a meeting with a customized Second Line parade or an authentic Mardi Gras float parade through the streets of New Orleans. Elements of our parade pageantry can include high school marching bands, brass bands, stilt walkers and colorful, costumed revelers. Mini floats are available for indoor parades and larger floats for street parades where conference attendees engage with New Orleanians by tossing beads to the crowds on the street. Mardi Gras beads and “Go-cups” can be customized with the company’s logos, as well.
New Orleans is also known as the “Birthplace of Jazz.” New Orleanians are passionate about our wealth of music and can create unique musical experiences from a colorful and festive Mardi Gras Indian Show to an exclusive Jazz Performance at historic Preservation Hall. Grammy award winning artists that call New Orleans home, are typically incorporated into programs and events, providing participants the unique flavor of New Orleans.
New Orleans is also famous for its cuisine and home to award winning chefs. ACCENT can customize culinary experiences from “hands on cooking” to walking tours with a little taste of everything or a down home local Seafood Boil.
A plethora of natural attractions and activities are available to provide a truly New Orleans experience, day or night. Paddlewheel cruises, airboat tours through the swamp, walking tours of the French Quarter and Garden District and cemetery tours are just a few of the many offerings to engage attendees in theunique culture.
The ACCENT team is passionate about their city and take pride in creating authentic and most memorable experiences for an unforgettable visit to New Orleans!
