ATLANTA – (August 23, 2016) – Unveiling a key component of its multi-faceted strategic realignment, the No. 1 convention, sports and entertainment destination in the world now has a brand new cyber destination.
Welcome to the Georgia World Congress Center Authority’s (GWCCA) new-look, user-friendly website – www.gwcca.org – which consolidates the Authority’s flagship properties – the Georgia World Congress Center, Georgia Dome, and Centennial Olympic Park – along with Savannah International Trade & Convention Center, under one online umbrella.
“Previously, guests visited separate websites for the Dome, Park and Georgia World Congress Center, but now, you can simply log onto gwcca.org, which hosts landing pages for each facility. The site also features a cross-campus, comprehensive calendar of events, so you don’t have to open multiple windows, or toggle back and forth to find out what’s going on at each venue,” said Jennifer LeMaster, GWCCA’s Chief Administrative Officer. “In addition, the new site features immersive images, breath-taking photography and bold graphics that capture the unique beauty of our iconic buildings and lush outdoor spaces.”
In addition to showcasing the GWCCA campus’ versatility to potential clients, this new site features the consolidated event planning guide, a recruitment and career portal, a section dedicated to campus development projects, links to facility services, as well as information on other on-campus facilities, including the College Football Hall of Fame and under-construction Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
This site is responsive, meaning that it adapts to whatever device it is being viewed on, whether it be a PC screen, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
One of the most compelling features of gwcca.org is the home page’s interactive image gallery, where users can delve into historical photos of the GWCCA downtown Atlanta campus, take visual tours of each venue as they are today, and peek into the future with 3D graphics and renderings of upcoming developments, created in collaboration with the Authority’s IT partner, CCLD Networks, and Georgia Tech’s Imagine Lab.
“We set out to create an immersive experience for our guests, showing off our beautiful facilities in downtown Atlanta while promoting all of our unique event spaces, our customers’ events, and offering concise, relevant content,” said IT Director Sam Brown.
