"GWCC Authority is a beautifully structured blank canvas that I get to paint outside the lines on. And it's the only center in the world that allows me to do so in the most creative and yet professional way."
- Erika Respress, Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show


The Georgia World Congress Center Authority is the largest combined convention, sports, and entertainment campus in North America and a top economic engine for the state of Georgia. Our downtown Atlanta campus features over 220 acres of prime event space anchored by Georgia World Congress Center, Centennial Olympic Park, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. With world-class attractions surrounding the campus and 12,000 hotel rooms within walking distance, we are honored to be regarded as a leader in destination events.

Whether you’re planning an event, attending one of the hundreds of events we host annually, or enjoying one of several greenspaces on our campus, we are committed to delivering to you a compelling and memorable guest experience.
