Inspired meetings spaces in downtown New Orleans live on International House Hotel’s second floor, the intersection of Architecture, Art and Technology. Built in 1887, the classical architecture features a monumental statue of Omphale, her epic narrative forever linked to Hercules. Her allegorical female figure reigns atop the building, holding Hercules’ club and wearing his lion skin. Building on the theme, a curated pre-function meeting space is home to the hotel’s internationally recognized Magdalena Gallery. It contains a growing collection of original art which explores the life and legacy of Mary Magdalene and celebrates the divine feminine and power of women generally. Finally, 100 mb wifi, modern A|V technology, handsome furniture by Herman Miller and custom furnishings by designer Lisa Marie Pagano create an uncommonly beautiful, highly functional meeting space designed to stoke creativity.
Across the street, the Conference Center at Entrepreneurs’ Row® occupies a beautiful 100-year-old building, once New Orleans’ most prominent music store.
Showcasing one of only three remaining cast iron façades in the city, it is a compelling mix of old and new. The historic architecture belies leading-edge technology, handsomely designed furnishings and refined finishes. The first in the city to offer 100 MHz internet speeds, the building is a joyful celebration of creativity, with expansive meeting spaces, warm white walls, large windows, rich lighting, custom carpet and an impressive array of local art set to a canvas of historic masonry and exposed wooden beams. Contemporary A|V equipment is readily available for any high-tech need.
