New Orleans is the known as the Big Easy, and it is the host city to HostingCon Global 2016 and one of the most famous and dynamic cities in the USA. It is experiencing a renaissance post-Katrina, and the development of its tech community has been a major part, according to Wired.

Tennessee Williams once said “America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland.” As a setting for HostingCon Global 2016, it represents the same part of the triangle as it did to Williams, with the cutting edge vitality that balances the disruptive force of San Fran and the power of the Big Apple.

Historic district which includes Bourbon Street (Rue Bourbon), and numerous famous music halls. Like the Gaslamp District in last year’s host city San Diego (though even older), the French Quarter is right next to the conference location, and the center of the city's night life.
