These five renowned venues below are walkable from Georgia World Congress Center and Atlanta’s “Big 6” hotels, and they double as spectacular meeting and event spaces (each with a distinctive, found-only-in-Atlanta atmosphere).


Georgia Aquarium

1. Georgia Aquarium

Meetings under the sea come with captivating views of beluga whales, fresh seasonal menus and audiovisual capabilities (of course). As the largest aquarium in the United States, Georgia Aquarium is one of Atlanta’s top attractions. A major expansion in the works for the aquarium (set for completion by 2020) will include a new shark gallery, increased animal interactions and a redesigned entry accessible from Pemberton Place.


Center for Civil & Human Rights(Gene Phillips,

2. Center for Civil & Human Rights

Regarded by many as one of Atlanta’s most profound museums and significant achievements, Center for Civil & Human Rights goes deeper than square footage and modern facilities for planners. Interactive exhibits and inspiring spaces dedicated to civil and global human rights will enlighten your attendees and leave them with lasting impressions.


World of Coca-Cola

3. World of Coca-Cola

Light-hearted, memorable and offering attendees tastes (literally) of iconic soda pop culture, World of Coca-Cola is one of the city’s most versatile event spaces.

From the Lobby, Loft and Theater to the Hub and Taste It! areas, you can reserve the entire attraction or one of the unique spaces.


Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame(Gene Phillips,

4. Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame

There’s a reason sports analogies have found their way into the world of business. The sports culture is inspiring. Since its 2014 opening, Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame has motivated meeting groups with more than 50,000 square feet of unique meeting space – 30,000 of which features interactive exhibits and memorabilia from college football’s greatest legends.

CNN Studio Tours

5. CNN Studio Tours

You can make a newsworthy meeting for your attendees at CNN Studio Tours. CNN Global Headquarters features several meeting and event spaces and offers behind-the-scenes tours for groups to see the new in the making.
