About New Orleans

A city in a class of its own, New Orleans offers endless opportunities for fun and entertainment, casting a global allure that brings more than 17 million visitors to the city a year.

In addition to its historic and flavorful charm, Louisiana is home to more than 450,000 aerospace manufacturing workers, 11,040 jobs that support the aerospace industry, and NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility, which has been a powerhouse for NASA's manufacturing in the region since the 1960s

With such a strong aerospace manufacturing and support presence, Louisiana has grown in recent years to adopt the aerospace industry and community as its own.

Be Wary of Hotel Reservation Scams
AIAA conferences and forums have recently become the target of wholesaler companies trying to sell rooms for our events. If you receive a phone call offering to make your reservation and take credit card information over the phone or via email, we highly recommend that you do not use their services. You run the risk of arriving at the hotel and not having a reservation, or being unable to modify or cancel your reservation, and possibly compromising your credit card details. AIAA does not contract with any company to serve as our representative, room block representative or housing company. It is recommended that AIAA attendees follow the suggested channels for booking accommodation within the conference block by following the instructions on this page. If you receive solicitations from other companies, please forward them to AIAA.
