With the NFL Super Bowl game 2013, nine days away and with Mardi Gras on its heels, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Louisiana Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne, government officials, business and tourism leaders celebrated the ribbon cutting ceremony to debut the Morial Center’s beautiful new entrance and Great Hall renovation.

The ceremony marked the completion of the 24-month, $52 million renovation of the former Hall A and La Louisiane Ballroom. The space has been re-configured into The Great Hall, a 60,300 square foot column-free ballroom, which is now the largest ballroom in New Orleans. The renovation also includes a 4,660 square foot “junior” ballroom with a roof-top terrace, named “The Rivergate Room,” and 25,000 square feet of pre-function space. The first official use of the Great Hall will be as the site of the NFL Store during Super Bowl XLVII.
