We actually have dozens and dozens of reasons as to why you should book a meeting in Atlanta, but here are our top 5. If you want more information on any of these, please contact us and we will provide our personalized assistance.
In Atlanta, it's all right here. Our compact convention district is within walking distance of the 4th largest convention center in the country, the Georgia World Congress Center, 12,000 hotel rooms, more than 315 restaurants and the city's top attractions.
They say that getting there is half the battle. Not in Atlanta. Nearly 80% of the U.S. population is within a two-hour flight. At the epicenter of the South, three interstates converge in the heart of the city. On the ground, the airport is just 10 miles south of the city and MARTA is accessible in the baggage claim of the airport, the Georgia World Congress Center and near most attractions.
Georgia is a right-to-work state, giving the meeting planner the freedom to work with contractors for certain services or plan directly through the meeting facilities. Pay less with lower labor costs and reduce your risk of disruption by booking in Atlanta.
Look to Atlanta to grow your global attendance. Accessibility expands with the opening of a new international terminal in 2012, adding more gates and more flights from destinations around the world. With a separate entrance and exit, your attendees are out of the airport and into your meeting with ease. They'll have no problem getting here, no matter where they are coming from.
The world's most accessible airport expands with the opening of a new international terminal in 2012. Also, Atlanta has the second highest number of US consulates outside of D.C., making a great combination with our airport to boost your global attendance. With global headquarters of several nonprofit organizations like CARE, Habitat for Humanity and the American Cancer Society, Atlanta has emerged as the launching pad for the meetings industry to build their corporate and social responsibility programs. And since these organizations are global, they can start here and rotate with you.
