The building's 2003 statewide economic impact was $2.56 billion, in direct correlation to spending by more than 600,000 total visitors-including delegates, exhibitors and other guests-in hotels, restaurants, shops, entertainment venues, etc. Over the past 19 years, $1.79 billion in new statewide tax revenue has been generated from the spending of associations, groups, etc. Currently the 7th largest convention center in the nation, the Morial Convention Center commands 1.1 million square feet of contiguous exhibit space in 12 separate/combinable halls, 140 meeting rooms, 2 ballrooms and a 4,000 square-foot Conference Auditorium.
