Atlanta is no stranger to meetings and events of substantial proportions. In early 2019, Super Bowl LIII called Atlanta home, along with the city's largest convention (which saw 50,000 people in attendance).

The transformational developments throughout downtown's convention and entertainment district alone have completely redefined the potential for citywide meetings. But even beyond the blueprint, there are so many aspects of this extraordinary city that will help you plan a seamless experience for your large groups.

To keep it light, here are three.

Fun Venues for Everyone

Being a hub for some impressively large events, Atlanta sees an array of visitors—doctors, pro-level athletes or fans of MomoCon. So, having attractions that appeal to any and all is a huge benefit for the city's convention scene. You can opt for larger-scale events at the colorful and expansive Georgia Aquarium, a pop-culture icon event at The World of Coca-Cola or a more formal affair at the Georgia Freight Depot. With so many distinctive venues in Atlanta, it can be hard to choose the right space. If you're feeling overwhelmed, send ACVB an RFP and relax while they take the reins.

Comfort within Walking Distance

The downtown convention campus includes a variety of high-starred hotels (including "The Big 6"). From the ritzy Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta and the dependable Atlanta Marriot Marquis to the boutique charm of the Ellis Hotel, you'll have plenty of variety when it comes to rooms and meeting space! But even if there's a citywide sell-out crisis, ACVB offers some great trackable rooming services, helping you house attendees when you need it most. Let's recap: walkable hotels, room variety, and a specialized lodging system? Easy peasy!
