Keeping the public informed

New Orleans Convention Center

The Times-Picayune has diligently kept the public informed about the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center since its conceptual development in 1978, when the state Legislature was considering the feasibility of developing a modern convention center to replace the Rivergate.

The paper faithfully reported on the building’s construction in 1981, its first use as the 1984 World’s Fair, its 1991 and 1999 expansions and its significant impact on our economy. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalism staff faithfully reported on the Convention Center’s 2006 reopening following Hurricane Katrina. Today, they’re keeping the public informed on the $557M improvement plans.
