History of New Orleans Arena
Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, medical operations that were being done at the Superdome were moved to the arena. The lighting at the Superdome where medical personnel were working was very bad, and they also dealt with leaking ceilings and soggy carpet. The New Orleans Arena’s design was tested in 1996 by CPP, a wind engineering consulting firm, so it fared far better through Hurricane Katrina than the Superdome.
The Arena hosted the NBA All-Star game in 2008. In 2006, the arena installed an LED center hung video and scoring system from Daktronics out of Brookings, South Dakota.
