Weather and Attire 

Typical weather in New Orleans in late February is mild, with little rain. The average temperature is mainly around the 70s but can dip into the low 50s at night. It should be nice enough for short sleeves and a light jacket during the day but don’t forget something warmer if you plan to go out in the evening. Attire for the Conference is “relaxed” Business Casual. The closing dinner will have a mardi gras–masquerade theme. So let’s see some outfits with vivid colors!!

New Orleans

New Orleans (NOLA) is a Louisiana city near the Gulf of Mexico on the Mississippi River. Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” it’s known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades, street parties, and now the 2023 IBDEA Conference!

Come early or stay late and Fall In Love With New Orleans!
