The New Orleans BioInnovation Center holds a series of special events called Innovation Louisiana each November. These events educate innovators, provide networking opportunities, and showcase the groundbreaking scientific research being done within Louisiana universities and startups.
Attendees include entrepreneurs, university researchers, students, clinicians, investors, and the wider business community. Come out to learn about turning discoveries into viable products and services, build your network, and get inspired by other entrepreneurs. If you’re interested in scientific advancement and helping build a stronger regional economy, these events are for you!
The conference will take place at the New Orleans BioInnovation Center (1441 Canal Street) on November 12-13.
The Tech Showcase and BioChallenge will be held at the Joy Theater (1200 Canal Street) on November 14.
You do not have to attend every event to participate. But you’re welcome to attend as many events as you can – we hope you’ll join us for all of them!
The early-bird rate $119. Student discounts are available.
Conference registration is $149. Walk-in conference tickets may be available at a higher rate, but we suggest you purchase tickets in advance because tickets may sell out before the conference begins.
The Tech Showcase and BioChallenge competition are free and open to the public!
You can sign up for one or more of the events here.
Conference attendees will receive a continental breakfast and a lunch buffet on Monday and Tuesday. Lunch will be provided at the Joy Theater on Wednesday for Tech Showcase and BioChallenge attendees.
Metered street parking is available throughout downtown New Orleans. There are also several public parking lots and garages that offer low-cost daily parking within a few blocks of the event venues, including on Rampart Street, Canal Street, Cleveland Avenue, and elsewhere. These are independently owned lots not affiliated with the Center.
We are currently negotiating a reduced rate room plan with one of New Orleans’ finest hotels. Please subscribe to our newsletter to find out more details as they are announced.
