In terms of business, Cincy by a long shot. NO is a tourist city, its bread and butter so for leisure, it wins hands down. Now once you combine the two aspects for an overall picture, Cincy, IMO wins out. While it doesn't have the umphh of NO in the entertainment department, it has enough coupled with the business aspect to put it over the top.

Well, the topic was pretty specific. It doesn't seem to be all that much about business.

Yeah, New Orleans is only the preeminent city for hosting the measly ol' Super Bowl.

Is this a serious question? New Orleans has a lot more unique attractions and culture than Cincinnati. In New Orleans you will find things you won't find anywhere else in the U.S. Cincinnati, for the most part, is your typical run of the mil city. It outclasses its neighbors by a good margin, Louisville, Columbus, Cleveland, Indianapolis, etc, but it hardly compete with a city as old and as unique as New Orleans.

I was just comparing the actual sports teams. Hosting the Super bowl is a tremendous asset for NO and I actually like the city, but as in most of these Random City vs. Cincinnati threads I have to point out our strengths because I think a lot of people just take Cincinnati to be another bland, random fly over city.

Thats actually not really true. New Orleans is a huge center for shipping, oil and gas, and subsea drilling.

Cincinnati still has a larger economy, but I dont think its accurate to say New Orleans is a fully tourist based economy. The only cities that really fit that are Vegas and Orlando.

New Orleans has some international business and some international tourist ties. However, New Oleans is equally sandwiched between Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami. All the former have much more demand for international service so New Orleans gets left out. Right now, New Orleans has no international flights whatsoever except for 2x daily to Toronto on Air Canada.

You just made that up. Cincinnati is third in Ohio for international immigration and frankly, for a metro area its size, the numbers are putrid. Columbus is (by a long shot) number one in Ohio for international immigration with Cleveland being number two. In 2012, the international immigrants were:

Columbus: 5,129 (on par with Charlotte, San Antonio, and Honolulu)
Cleveland: 3,111 (on par with Buffalo, Jacksonville, and St. Louis)
Cincinnati and New Orleans: 2,000 >

Cincinnati has 9 fortune five hundred companies.

New Orleans has just one.

It all comes down to one thing...marketing. The city doesn't promote itself enough.
