Campus Development

Since 1976 when the Georgia World Congress Center 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, the 71,250-seat Georgia Dome, International Plaza, multiple parking decks, the College Football Hall of Fame and the 3.9 million convention center.

That evolution continues today with the upcoming completion of Mercedes-Benz Stadium (2017), decommissioning of the Georgia Dome (2017), development of an on-site headquarters hotel, a facelift for the 40-year-old GWCC featuring a modern glass façade, and retooling of Centennial Olympic Park to include renovation of the Southern Company Amphitheater and creation of a new event space.
