The 45th Annual Convention of the American Association of Private Railroad Car Owners will be held in New Orleans, LA, from the 2nd through the 4th of May. We were unable to coordinate a special train this year but the location is pragmatic for individual cars to travel to the convention site.
The Hyatt is a four-star hotel in the heart of the Crescent City’s downtown will host our Welcome Reception on the evening of May 2nd, as well as all our convention sessions. The hotel is just a ten-minute walk from Union Passenger Terminal where AAPRCO cars will be parked. Other nearby attractions include the historic French Quarter, Arts District, and the Mississippi Riverfront.
Discounted room rates have already been sent to AAPRCO members. You must be an AAPRCO member to attend the convention and activities.
