Description

If you ask the average person American what comes to mind when they hear "Louisiana"  they will likely mention Mardi Gras, airboat tours, jazz music, Bourbon Street, restaurants, or Super Bowls.   In the gumbo that is Louisiana’s economy, tourism is a MAJOR  and high profile ingredient.

 Walt Leger, the President Elect of New Orleans and Company – the group charged with promoting New Orleans to the world and keeping the city's tourism engine running - joins us to discuss how important tourism is to the economy, the challenges facing the sector in NOLA, and why he remains optimistic about the path forward – ALL on this week’s Louisiana Global Gumbo.
