First-Nighter Party

Monday, March 13

7 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Join fellow members for a traditional Mardi Gras celebration, AEA-style! You will become part of the parade as we stroll into the evening’s festivities and celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the AEA. Enjoy a sumptuous New Orleans buffet with open bar, live music by NOLA’s well-known band, the Bucktown All- Stars; beads, masks, and, of course, it wouldn’t be a Mardi Gras party without an authentic float and a jazz band to lead the parade! Suggested dress is Mardi Gras-inspired costumes!

TICKETS: A party ticket is included in a full meeting registration. Individual tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $175 per person. We strongly suggest you purchase extra tickets in advance — there will be a LIMITED number of party tickets available on-site in New Orleans.

Child policy - This party is a professional networking event for convention attendees. This is a ticketed function – tickets are $175 each or included in a full registration fee.  Any child under the age of 18 will need a ticket and the cost will be $75. Child Registration Form
