Our Pedigree: An Evolution Since 1972


Today's Custom Conventions is the evolution of custom convention service that began in 1972 with the formation of the official transportation group to manage the airport/hotel services for the City of New Orleans. The city boomed as a convention and meeting site. Our services were expanded into touring and custom services achieving a number of firsts including first mini-bus per capita sightseeing and the first company to use and train tour guides.


Demand for all sectors of services expanded so rapidly that it was necessary to divide the corporation into separate, specialized companies and Custom Conventions was established in 1979 to provide custom and package services and coordinate the services of all the suppliers needed to meet client demands. For nearly a decade now, we have provided every type of service to corporations and conventions, for individual VIP's to more than 8,000 delegates.


An Invitation From Custom Conventions

The Emissary of the President was meeting with an Emperor in the Emperor's Palace in Paris. It was a grand setting, and a heady experience for the Emissary, a man of considerable esteem, but a humble man.

The President's instructions were clear: purchase "that one spot on earth without which our young nation cannot prosper and the ruler of which would rule from this point in history."


In the initial meeting the Emperor acceded to the demand to sell "that one spot" and then threw in, for the same price, more than one-third of the total land available to these United States of America. Thomas Jefferson, the President, and Benjamin Franklin, our Emissary to Napoleon's Court, never dreamed of the Louisiana Purchase.

The City today retains that charm, those structures, that sense of place and history that is too often not captured by those who visit. We can give you the feel of New Orleans, the moods and the pleasures that have made this City world renowned for more than 250 years. We are prepared to offer to your guests New Orleans: her music, her food, the ambiance and the difference.

Most importantly, our hospitality will be offered in a style and manner that will ease your responsibilities, causing "our" guests to marvel at New Orleans, while enjoying her charms in a way that they probably have never experienced. This City can be enchanting, and we can make it so for you and your guests at this very important and special conference here in New Orleans.
