About Mardi Gras World
It is hard not to picture Bourbon Street, Cajun food, and Mardi Gras when you think of New Orleans. Get an authentic Mardi Gras experience by joining us at the famous Mardi Gras World as we celebrate the opening day of the 2022 Intentional Roofing Expo. While you are there, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into creating the legendary floats and costumes for a New Orleans Mardi Gras affair.
Get ready for the First-Time Attendee Reception and Welcome Party with a traditional New Orleans Second Line Band. Join us at the RYNO Strategic Solutions booth #538 as the band kicks off the night's festivities. Follow the band to Lobby D where you can grab a beer or Hurricane drink before we head out to Mardi Gras World.
If you need a negative COVID-19 test to attend the events, you can visit room 240 for the IRE On-Site COVID-19 testing. Rapid antigen tests are available for $50 each. The testing room will be open on Tuesday until 7:00 PM.
