HEDNA Lounge

HEDNA Lounge is the networking hub for events and is ideal for intimate partner discussions, socializing, meeting new faces and taking a break! This year, keep an eye out for HEDNA lounge announcements – big plans are underway for this space in New Orleans – including partner, sponsor and innovation showcasing opportunities.



Hotel Monteleone

A historic landmark and a distinguished Preferred Hotel, the Hotel Monteleone is a family owned and operated property ideally situated in the heart of New Orleans. Located in the famed French Quarter, close enough to all the revelry that has made New Orleans famous but tucked just enough away to offer a refuge that is conducive to a productive and enjoyable meeting environment for HEDNA attendees.

HEDNA has secured a special room rate of  $199 per night (taxes not included) for single occupancy available until December 28, 2023, or until the room block is exhausted, whichever comes first. Click here to learn more about the property.
