Catalyst for Growth

Plans are in motion for GWCCA’s new headquarter hotel Signia by Hilton Atlanta. Featuring close to 1,000 rooms, this premier full-service 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 Atlanta is projected to open in January 2024 and will be the first newly-constructed Signia by Hilton in the world.

GWCCA is proud to partner with Drew Company, Inc., Gensler, SG Contracting, Skanska on the headquarter hotel project.
