The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is located approximately 13 miles from the Loews New Orleans Hotel.

Average temperatures for the New Orleans area in late March are high 74° / Low 55°.

We have none. We've decided sport coats and button downs are overrated. Dress for the entire conference is casual.  Rich will probably wear jeans or maybe even shorts if the weather is nice enough.


The 2023 EVS is will begin Wednesday at 11:00 am with a pre-conference activity. Those arriving Tuesday night are invited to a kick-off dinner at 6:30 pm Tuesday, location TBD.

The EVS program officiallly opens for registration at 5:00 pm Wednesday in Parish Hall.  A First-Timer Attendee Reception will take place at 6:00 pm, followed by an all-attendee reception at 6:30 and the famous HU Icebreaker at 6:45 pm.

The EVS program will officially conclude on Friday morning with the CIO Panel session and finishes at 11 am. In order to better accommodate departure schedules and give attendees more flexibility when booking flights, Hospitality Upgrade is using LYFT!

EVS attendees will be able to use an exclusive Lyft coupon code to take a Lyft to the New Orleans International Airport.
The code will be active from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM on Friday, March 31, 2023.
Hospitality Upgrade will cover trips up to $30.00 USD*.
If you already have the Lyft app, simply enter the Lyft code given in the Promos section of the Lyft app. Once the code is accepted, it will appear in the 'Promos' tab and you will be able to see the details of the code, such as time restrictions, location restrictions, how many times it can be used, and how much credit you have left.
If you do not have the Lyft app, please download the Lyft app on your phone from the Apple app store or Google Play store. Or use this link to download the Lyft app, (the EVS code will be automatically applied):  https://www.lyft.com/lp/EVS23NOLA
*If the fare exceeds $30.00 USD, the remainder will be charged to the card on your Lyft profile.
