Envisioned as an economic catalyst for the area, GWCCA's headquarter hotel will help Atlanta capture new convention and entertainment business as well as generate jobs during the construction phase and once it opens.

Catalyst for Growth

Slated to sit on the former site of the Georgia Dome, the GWCCA is moving forward with plans to build a new luxury 1000-room Signia Hilton hotel. Signia Hilton completes a one-stop-shop package of facilities 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 will be located on the northwest corner of the campus, adjacent to Building C of the Georgia World Congress Center. Expected to break ground in 2020, GWCCA’s new headquarter hotel is projected to open in 2022 and will be the first newly-constructed Signia Hilton in the world.

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

We are proud to launch Signia Hilton, which exemplifies our innovative spirit and will raise the bar on what it means to deliver truly customer-inspired hospitality.
Christopher J. Nassetta,
President and CEO, Hilton
