As Louisiana’s Capital City, Baton Rouge is an ideal destination for professional gatherings – helping you create an experience your guests won’t soon forget. We’re well-equipped with state-of-the-art meeting spaces capable of accommodating gatherings of all sizes. From the Raising Cane’s River Center to numerous hotels with excellent facilities, like The Watermark or The Crowne Plaza, we’ve got the space you need.

Baton Rouge has served as the host city for countless corporate functions, athletic events, and everything in between. In 2023 alone, Baton Rouge hosted:

242 meetings & events

183,943 event attendees

180 travel groups

Hospitality is part of our community’s DNA. Which makes us the perfect match for events like the 2023 Gulf Coast Food & Fuel Expo. In March 2023, Baton Rouge treated the 1,500+ attendees to immersive experiences and entertainment throughout the expo, including a live baby gator, car hops on stilts, and a surprise second line to wrap up the event.

And when it comes to downtime? We help you make the most of every minute, both on and off the clock.


Our scenery is top-notch. The Mississippi River provides a stunning backdrop for your event, and Baton Rouge’s numerous parks, such as the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center and the LSU Hilltop Arboretum, offer serene settings for relaxation and outdoor exploration. Just being out in the local scenery can help your meeting attendees unwind and foster stronger connections and collaboration.


See the city from an elevated perspective at the Louisiana State Capitol (the tallest capitol building in America), lounge on the lawn beside the river at the Old State Capitol, or take a deep dive into the state’s diverse history and culture at the LSU Rural Life Museum. However you choose to spend your downtime, it’ll be time well spent!


Baton Rouge is also renowned for its culinary scene, which blends traditional Southern flavors with contemporary twists. When you’re here, make sure to visit local institutions like Bistro Byronz, Elsie’s Pie, and Eliza’s Restaurant. We love it when your plate’s full.


Looking for a big night out? The city’s vibrant nightlife features live music venues, bars, and clubs that showcase the best of Louisiana’s music scene, including jazz, blues, and zydeco. Enjoy your night on the town at The Edge Lounge, Boudreaux and Thibodeaux or Red Stick Social.

Baton Rouge is an excellent choice for hosting meetings and conferences. Our unique blend of history and contemporary amenities provides an engaging and productive environment for any professional gathering. Host your meeting in Baton Rouge and help create a memorable and enriching experience for your guests.
