NEW ORLEANS WILL is a campaign created by the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau to advocate for the hospitality and tourism industry. Tourism is the city’s largest industry employing more than 80,000 New Orleanians and generating billions of dollars for our local and regional economy. NEW ORLEANS WILL is raising awareness amongst locals that while visitors may come and go, their dollars stay here — and ripple through the community to fund city services, police, schools, people salaries, and ultimately, improve the quality of life for every New Orleanian.
