Plan Your Experience at INNO

New Orleans’ next great conference, between the two weekends of Jazz Fest

After the madness of Mardi Gras and before the overbearing heat of New Orleans summers is a time that locals call “Festival Season.” The peak of Festival Season is the two weekends of Jazz Fest. The days in between those weekends are a wonderful, magical time in New Orleans, which is why it was chosen for INNO.

Following Collision’s departure from New Orleans, INNO restores a space for entrepreneurs, businesses, and technology professionals to make meaningful connections, collaborate, and find the services, tools, and resources that they need.

If you’re a startup or business that knows the value of innovative thinkers, problem-solvers, and creators, INNO is the place for you. Help us continue to foster and grow technology innovation and entrepreneurship in the Gulf South.

New Orleans is the perfect hometown for a global community of innovators and collaborators.

This year’s INNO is the inaugural event of what is destined to become a cornerstone in the annual calendars of the tech world, ambitious startups, and innovation-focused organizations. Establish yourself as a founding member of a new community.  

During this time of spontaneity, come bond with other innovators visiting from all over the world. From workshop attendees to keynote speakers, everyone will share original thinking about tech, business, and society. You’ll leave with new insights for you to take back with you and share with your own network. Find your home in an environment devoted to the future of innovation.

And after all, this is New Orleans. You never know what surprises are around the corner. Maybe you’ll happen upon a famous rock band busking on the sidewalk or a celebrated musician joining a nightclub’s house band.

The only guarantee is that something exciting will happen.
