NOLA musicians
French Quarter
Marlton, N.J. — Mark your calendars for May 1-3, 2016, and get ready to join Chauffeur Driven in New Orleans for our second Executive Retreat!

You’ll find the same energy, immersion in the city’s unique local flavor, and high-level education that made our Nashville retreat such a resounding success—and we’ll make getting to know the Big Easy a breeze. With a personality all its own, we’re already planning local tours and French Quarter fun that will get you intimately acquainted with this one-of-a-kind city. As a bonus, CD’s room block opens on April 30, so you can enjoy the tail-end of the legendary Jazz Fest before our retreat officially begins.

“We took our inspiration and a page from the TLPA playbook,” CD Publisher Chris Weiss said. “A few years ago, they held their Spring Conference & Expo at the end of Jazz Fest, which was incredible. We thought that our retreat’s attendees would love to have a similar experience.”

After tallying the results from our post-Nashville survey, the industry staggeringly agreed that it’s ready for a few days in NOLA. Already a natural choice for our next retreat’s locale, New Orleans recently ran away with the No. 12 spot on Cvent’s 2015 Top 50 Cities for Meetings and Events in the United States, which you can view at While perusing the list, you might also notice that Nashville was ranked at No. 9 and our next two CD Show host cities—Miami and Washington, D.C.—occupy the No. 9 and No. 6 spots, respectively. And while Atlantic City was conspicuously absent from the rankings, Orlando, the home of our 2017 show, topped the list at No. 1.

We’ll be bringing 200 industry operators to New Orleans at the awesome rate of $199/night at the JW Marriott, which will put you right in the heart of the city with its Canal Street locale. You’ll find all of the highlights from our Nashville retreat reimagined with a New Orleans flair: nonstop networking in an intimate industry gathering, getting an eagle-eye view of your company through world-class educational sessions, and, of course, plenty of opportunities to enjoy the nightlife and local flare that are unique to this hotspot of a destination—plus a few new twists to ensure that our retreats will always offer you the best return on your investment.

“The retreat was nonstop fun and networking opportunities—what an event! Great idea for moving it around, and I look forward to attending next year’s retreat (New Orleans, watch out). Consider my tickets booked!” said Ed Kahakauwila of L.A. Limousines & Transportation Services in Victoria, British Columbia.

“The entire retreat was terrific,” added George Jacobs of Windy City Limousine in Chicago, Ill. “I didn’t feel the need to be “on duty” all the time like at the big shows. Sign me up for Nawlins!”
