Conference Headquarters/Hotel Accommodations
Hyatt Regency French Quarter, 800 Iberville St., New Orleans,
New Orleans, the perfect place for a conference on water resources!
"Situated on a bend of the Mississippi River 100 miles from
its mouth, New Orleans has been the chief city of Louisiana and
the Gulf of Mexico's busiest northern port since the early 1700s.
Founded by the French, ruled for 40 years by the Spanish and bought
by the United States in the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, New Orleans
is known for its distinct Creole culture and vibrant history. Significant
battles of the War of 1812 and the Civil War were fought over the
city. In its last hundred years the key struggles of New Orleans
have been social (poverty, racial strife) and natural (hurricanes,
floods and slowly sinking land)." (source: www.History.com/topics/new-orleans)
