Campus Development

Since 1976 when the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) officially opened its doors, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority’s downtown Atlanta campus has continued to evolve, expand and take shape as the hub of the capital city’s entertainment and hospitality district. From its beginnings as a single exhibition hall (Building A), the GWCCA campus now includes 21-acre Centennial Olympic Park, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, International Plaza, multiple parking decks, the College Football Hall of Fame, Junior Achievement Discovery Center and the 3.9-million-square-foot convention center.

Coming development includes the Home Depot Back Yard, the GWCC’s Contiguous Exhibition Facility, an on-site convention headquarters hotel and a new parking deck.
