Letter from the President

Welcome to the Q1 issue of REGION Magazine!

For our cover story, we explore the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, the venue which serves as the first impression of the region that visitors get when they arrive. The unveiling of the new MSY terminal just over two years ago radically changed what people see from our city. From the awe-inspiring architecture that created wide-open spaces to new amenities such as first-class dining, lounges, and local retailers, the airport is something to be remembered. And now, the facility is regarded as one of the best in the country, by aviation experts and travelers alike.

When it comes to the business side of music, New Orleans has starting to catch up on delivering the management, legal, marketing, and licensing support that Louisiana artists need. To help grow that side of the industry, GNO, Inc. has helped put together a unique apprenticeship, MIC’D UP, that helps connect the next generation of music professionals with local companies that are working with performers from our region and beyond.

In addition to being a region that nurtures the soul, Greater New Orleans is also home to some of the nation’s leading healthcare providers. As medical innovation continues to drive change, local systems such as LCMC and Ochsner are evolving to offer new programming, easier access to care, and improving the overall patient experience.

Bigger is always better when it comes to entertainment, and Harrah’s New Orleans has embraced that mantra as the facility undergoes a massive renovation and expansion of offerings. Over the past several years, the casino complex has added an incredible live music venue in the form of The Fillmore, launched a brand-new sportsbook on site, and is currently expanding its footprint to deliver even more high-quality excitement to our region.

Finally, you’ll be introduced to introduced to Patrick Cresson or OUTFRONT Media, a remarkable business leader who balances running a major outdoor advertising operation with supporting impactful business organizations in the region such as GNO, Inc.
