WHAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM NEW ORLEANS' HISTORY

New Orleans’ music, dance, festivals and food is shaped by the convergence of cultures – French, Spanish, Italian, Native and African. The Summit opening panel will provide insights on how the city celebrates its diverse entertainment and what makes this city a global destination for sociability.
