And, with the loss of so many meetings (NOLA convention and tourism alone makes up almost 46 percent of the state's total traveler expenditures!), and the rest of the area wants you to know it's still open for business. This from the Shreveport-Bossier Convention & Tourist Bureau:


    More than 204,000 convention and meeting delegates were scheduled to meet in New Orleans over the next two months. That's an economic impact of roughly $44 million that the state desperately needs in this time of crisis.
