Between Atlanta’s downtown and its bustling airport lies the ATL Airport District, a vibrant cluster of cities that deliver world-class service with an easy, authentic vibe. With the only convention center directly connected to a major U.S. airport, and offering over 7,000 hotel rooms, complimentary transportation, an eclectic restaurant scene, and unique attractions, the District is your gateway to great meetings.

Once you’re wheels down at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, servicing over 150 U.S. cities with daily non-stop flights, everything you need to meet up is closer than you think. Conventiongoers travel from baggage claim to the walkable Gateway Center Campus – home to the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) – by a free, 2-minute ride on the ATL SkyTrain. Some of the District’s many award-winning hotels sit directly on the property (with still more in development). Inside the facility, planners can savor the impressive all-on-one-level complex at their disposal, totaling about 400,000 ft2:

  • 150,000 ft2 – nearly column-free exhibit space
  • 90,000 ft2 – pre-function space
  • 16,000 ft2 – meeting space
  • 40,000-ft2 – ballroom (metro Atlanta’s largest)
  • 100,000-ft2 – adjoining 5,000-seat arena

Offering additional space for meetings and events right next door to the GICC is the Gateway Center Arena. Both the Arena and the GICC enjoy exceptional in-house catering by Proof of the Pudding @ GICC whose imaginative, flexible chefs deliver fresh, memorable experiences that are miles from typical convention fare.

Beyond the Gateway Center Campus are the tree-lined cities that make up the District. Attendees will enjoy the historic downtown areas where incredible public art abounds as they make their way to one of many locally-owned restaurants. Teams can toast to collaboration on a rooftop bar, at a local brewery or pub, or in a sleek cocktail lounge.

There’s no shortage of unique venues and experiences in the District. The Porsche Experience Center boasts boardroom spaces overlooking two test tracks and luxury sportscars. Events reach new heights in the Delta Flight Museum’s artfully renovated 1940s airplane hangars. The Backstage Tour of Chick-fil-A’s headquarters offers an interactive team-building outing. If that isn’t enough, the District is just 10 miles from popular downtown Atlanta attractions.

With its prime location at the doorstep of the world’s most traveled airport, the ATL Airport District is truly convenient from anywhere and connected to everywhere. The dedicated team at Atlanta’s alternative CVB is on standby to help make planning your next meeting or event a success.
