Getting There

Atlanta is home to the busiest, most efficient, and accessible airport in the world – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). With more flights from more locations coming into Atlanta than any other airport in the world, Atlanta makes smart business sense.

The world’s most traveled airport is two hours from more than 80 percent of the country’s population and provides direct, non-stop access from more than 150 U.S. cities and 75 international destinations from six continents. Once you land in Atlanta, you’re less than 20 minutes from the heart of the city and everything Atlanta has to offer, with easy public transportation on MARTA or Uber, Lyft, taxis, limos and shuttles.

Insider Information

The opening of a state-of-the-art stadium in 2017 brings a Major League Soccer team to the already sports-mad capital; The BeltLine, Atlanta’s answer to NYC’s High Line, adds a much-needed walkability factor to the traffic-snarled metropolis; and East Atlanta and surrounding neighborhoods are in the midst of a boom, ushering in cool brew pubs and innovative restaurants. From the epic Living Walls project to the whimsical Tiny Doors installations, the local art scene provides a world-class experience. Hit shows such as Atlanta and The Walking Dead are filmed here too, earning the city a new nickname: Hollywood of the South.

Atlanta’s compact convention and entertainment district is at the center of it all. Surrounding the Georgia World Congress Center and Centennial Olympic Park are award-winning restaurants, unique event spaces and great hotels.
