You are Not Simply Renting a Space. You are Creating a Memorable Experience.

Centrally located between New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, there is no place quite like The Harbor Center for meetings and conventions. Our beautifully spacious 45,000 square-foot facility is home to nearly 200 events annually, from intimate corporate retreats to large consumer shows, as well as banquets, sporting events, business seminars and more.

Located at the crossroads of three interstate highways with easy access to more than 1,400 hotel rooms, The Harbor Center is an event planner’s dreams come true. Strategically built on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain, surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, the center provides the perfect backdrop for a successful and memorable event.
