Over the years, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority campus has undergone numerous expansions to meet the needs of growing conventions and special events. This section of our website will keep you up to date on the latest Authority capital improvements.
Coming development includes the Andrew Young International Blvd project, an on-site convention headquarters hotel and a new parking deck.
The hallmark of the GWCCA campus is connectivity. The connections between our venues, the hotel district, and the world's busiest airport are key differentiators in Atlanta's ability to compete for in-demand conventions and tradeshows. The dynamic evolution of the GWCCA campus continues with the completion of a fixed gateway between exhibit halls in Buildings B and C to create over one million square feet of contiguous exhibition space. Considering exhibitor interaction and the optimum flow of show attendees, GWCCA made the decision to select the north option to create a fixed gateway between exhibit halls in Buildings B and C. This project solidifies Atlanta’s place as the world’s premier convention destination, providing top-flight customer service and amenities for all events. The potential economic impact of the contiguous exhibition facility is $632 million.
Located on the former Georgia Dome site, the Orange Deck will include six levels of parking. It will consist of 556 parking spaces and 12 electric vehicle charging stations. Settled beside The Home Depot Backyard and facing east of Building C, the deck will be vehicle-accessible from Andrew Young International Blvd., The Home Depot Backyard, and Mangum Street. The addition of the Orange Deck will provide an additional parking option as well as easy access to Mercedes-Benz Stadium and GWCC. Construction started in July 2018 and is estimated for completion in Winter 2020.
