Private Club Reciprocity
In addition to its ties with all WTCs worldwide, the World Trade Center of New Orleans has reciprocal agreements with over 200 clubs worldwide. Here at home, reciprocity has been established with the Camelot Club of Baton Rouge, City Club of Baton Rouge, City Club of Lafayette, The Pioneer Club of Lake Charles, Lotus Club of Monroe and Cambridge Club of Shreveport.

In accordance with our reciprocal agreements, each private club requires a letter of introduction or a temporary access card from WTC New Orleans prior to our members’ visits. The WTC will determine which document is required based on your club selection. To select a club and request a letter of introduction or a temporary access card, contact (504) 529-1601 or The WTC will e-mail or fax a copy of the letter to you for your reference.

You may contact all clubs directly for dining or guest room reservations and any other pertinent information such as parking, preferred method of payment, or guest usage fees.
