Why Choose Our Destination?

As one of the top convention cities in the country, Atlanta continues to offer new experiences for guests. Atlanta has caught the attention of the world’s leading travel experts as a must-see destination. Money Magazine included Atlanta on its ‘Best Places to Travel’ list for 2023 while also naming our city the best place to live in the United States. Atlanta is the epicenter of the South, offering an accessible destination for all visitors. A two-hour flight connects 80 percent of the U.S. population to the city via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which also provides access to more than 75 international destinations in 50 countries. Navigating the city is a breeze upon arrival with MARTA, Atlanta’s rapid transit system. MARTA comes directly to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s baggage claim and takes attendees to Downtown, Midtown, Buckhead and beyond. Downtown is home to Atlanta’s walkable convention and entertainment district. In the heart of Downtown, Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) boasts the world’s largest LEED-certified convention center and hosts some of the country’s largest shows with more than 1 million square feet of contiguous exhibit space. The convention center campus also includes Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Centennial Olympic Park, the 22-acre greenspace that serves as Atlanta’s legacy of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The park is surrounded by world-class attractions that not only offer interactive experiences for guests, but also serve as dynamic event spaces. The city’s facilities don’t end there. Also downtown, Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart accommodates everything from small board meetings to large-scale events. An array of hotel properties provide more than 13,000 hotel rooms in Downtown. Opened January 2024, Signia by Hilton Atlanta features 976 guest rooms and will connects directly to Georgia World Congress Center. The convention center hotel will offer both attendees and meeting planners an elevated experience—from chef-driven restaurants to more than 100,000 square feet of event space.
