Catalyst for Growth

Plans are in motion for GWCCA’s new headquarter hotel Signia by Hilton. Featuring close to 1,000 rooms, this luxury hotel will sit on the northwest corner of the campus, adjacent to Building C of Georgia World Congress Center, and is envisioned as an economic catalyst attracting commercial and residential growth, creating job opportunities, and boosting convention attendance. The hotel will be developed in a joint public/private venture and completes a one-stop-shop package of facilities unrivaled in North America. Expected to break ground in Spring 2021, Signia by Hilton is projected to open in Fall 2023 and will be the first newly-constructed Signia by Hilton in the world.

The GWCCA is proud to partner with Drew Company, Inc. and Gensler on the headquarter hotel project.

Signia by Hilton Atlanta is set to transform the Atlanta skyline and impress today’s sophisticated travelers and meeting attendees by infusing state-of-the-art technology, premium design and locally-inspired concepts into every aspect of the guest experience.
