#WhyWeLoveNola: Katy Bertrand, Creative Services Mgr.


Katy Bertrand loves variety, which is why she fits in perfectly at BBC—no day is ever the same in the events world. As the newest member of BBC’s creative team, Katy researches new ideas and scouts our city for the best entertainment, locations, and charm. While New Orleans is filled with magic and history, it is also filled with innovation and Katy has her finger on the pulse. She makes sure our clients get that exclusive first look that only BBC can provide. She loves New Orleans because it is dynamic, with distinct character to be found in each neighborhood…

“Whether you grew up here or you’re a Nola transplant, the 504 pride sets in sooner rather than later. We are fortunate to have the best of multiple worlds and a spirit that goes beyond the Saints, our jazz, or our food. What can I say, #NOLAPrideForLife!”
