Meet to Eat offers a cool opportunity to savor New Orleans with new friends and peers. Get to know other conference attendees over dinner at dining destinations around New Orleans. This has been a popular activity for attendees over the years and is an opportunity for conference attendees to network in a relaxed environment.
