New Orleans Morial Convention Center | September 16-17, 2020

As we looked to reschedule our LRA SHOWCASE, we had to consider the more restrictive approach to group gatherings imposed by the City of New Orleans. The lack of knowing when we might see expanded capacity allowed, has result in our decision to cancel our 2020 event and will instead focus efforts on our 2021 SHOWCASE. Our 2021 LRA Showcase will be August 7th and 8th at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center."

About LRA


The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) was established in 1946 to advocate on behalf of the state’s foodservice and hospitality industry among elected officials and regulatory agencies. Under the leadership of its original officers and directors, the association set forth several founding principles that continue to guide the association to this day.  Since its inception, the LRA has been recognized as a peer leader among other state restaurant associations in the country. 

The LRA is governed by a Board of Directors that represents all segments of the foodservice and hospitality industry in Louisiana. The LRA, LRA Self Insurer’s Fund for Workers’ Compensation and its LRA Education Foundation have a staff of professionals led by the President and CEO. 


The LRA’s nine statewide chapters are composed of thousands of restaurant operations and related businesses, including hotels, caterers and suppliers of goods and services to the industry.
