Man exploring museum as part of tour


"We bring competitors into Baton Rouge from all over the US and Canada.  They are always impressed by the hospitality of the Baton Rouge area people and they enjoy the many outstanding restaurants the city has to offer."

"Thank you for making our visit to Baton Rouge a success. We couldn't have done it without your assistance. I especially want to thank Philipa Blair and Geraldine Bordelon as they were consistently excellent to work with. With thanks to your staff--everything you did in making our 2015 Society of American Foresters National Convention such a success--you have no rivals in the industry!

Again, thank you for being such a great part of the whole convention."

Matthew E. Menashes
Chief Executive Officer, Society of American Foresters

"Thank you very much for your assistance and southern hospitality! Our conference was a HUGE success. There were 696 attendees and 810 registrants, 2nd largest Fall Regional Conference in Region V with number one being in New Orleans in 2007. The bags you provided were VERY helpful and we actually gave all of them out.

Once again, thank you for the support and assistance."

Briana D. Saul

"I am sending you a note to thank you for all of Visit Baton Rouge’s assistance with the recent American Brahman Breeders Association Membership Convention.  We had a great event and one that created a lot of excitement for our group and will likely go down as the best one ever.  This was our fourth annual event and it was the largest to date bringing members from six states and Canada.

Much of the success of this event was due to your staff  helping us secure the proper venues, lining up the local chefs, providing us with information as we needed it and assisting us in every way possible.  This help started two years ago when we first made a request for bids and at each turn we were provided with someone who was always very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous.  I can’t express to you how much we appreciate Visit Baton Rouge and what you did to assist us.

I want to also pass along that many of our attendees were able to get out of the hotel and walk around downtown, and all of the kids got out and took advantage of the local attractions further making Baton Rouge a great destination venue. We look forward to working with you and your staff in the future."
