Eat, Drink & Explore: Experience New Orleans with SiteMinder at HITEC

Eat, Drink & Explore Experience New Orleans with SiteMinder at HITEC1By Fig Cakar, managing director – the Americas, SiteMinder

Dallas, US – Located on the Mississippi River in Louisiana, New Orleans is world-famous for its raucous all-night-long party vibe, great cuisine inspired by French, American and African cultures, and, of course, the renowned Deep South hospitality.

Our team here at SiteMinder is thrilled to be exhibiting again at HITEC, ROC and IPW, and to celebrate we’ve pulled together a fun guide to drinking, eating and exploring the ‘Big Easy’. It covers everything delegates need to know about the city – even the weather and travel – and of course plenty of bars and restaurants great for unwinding after a hectic show day.

For me, these events are a great opportunity to catch up with old industry friends (and new ones!), as well as experience some great product innovations from the hotel technology sector, which continues to support the success of many hoteliers around the world and enables them to remain competitive through times when the only constant seems to be change.

This year, in particular, I am excited to be a part of the launch of the next generation in market intelligence. On June 21, SiteMinder will be revealing a free solution specifically designed to empower hotels in:

● Optimizing their room rates
● Maximizing their profitability
● Driving performance in real-time.

So, before we get to the New Orleans guide, here are three ways to get involved with SiteMinder at the events:

1. Say cheers to Happy Hour
Join us for Happy Hour at HITEC on June 21 from 3pm – stand #1611

2. Book a personalized demo

3. Get an exclusive look at our exciting reveal
As mentioned above, we have some very exciting news and all will be revealed on June 21. If you can’t wait until then, you can register to be the first to try this FREE real-time pricing intelligence tool.

Le Bar LongA place to meet and talk, this bar is unique in its design – its structure is broken up by large white linen curtains, and a fabulous artwork collection. Located at the heart of the hotel, Le Bar Long is unique in its design and luminosity. For this space, designer Philippe Starck wanted to break with convention, the repetitive face-to-face layout between patrons and a bartender moving behind a bar.
