The Georgia World Congress Center Authority operates three surface lots and two parking decks on campus managed by SP+. There are over 5,600 parking spaces to make visiting the GWCCA convenient for guests.
Standard daily rate for parking is $15. During major events and game days, parking ranges from $20-$60 on campus. All lots are gated and attendants are on duty during all show/event hours. Additionally, our own public safety force patrols the lots and decks ensuring the safety of you and your automobile.
The Georgia World Congress Center Authority operates an on-site 540,000-square-foot marshalling yard on Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. next to the Yellow Lot. Not many convention centers across the country offer an on-site marshalling yard, which can save you time and money. The marshalling yard can accommodate approximately 600 trucks just seconds away from GWCC loading docks.
Additionally, like all parking decks and lots on campus, the marshalling yard is patrolled 24 hours a day by GWCC Public Safety to ensure safe access to and from the facility during the show.
The Advantage Program highlights the unique and traditional sponsorship opportunities, in addition to the Center's extensive digital signage network. Developed to assist customers, exhibitors and corporate partners with new and creative ways to achieve maximum return on their sponsorship investment, this is accomplished through extensive exposure during events to the GWCC's millions of guests that visit our campus and venue on an annual basis.
Movie producers and location scouts flock to the GWCCA’s film-friendly campus for a variety of projects including the recent theatrical releases of “Venom” and “The Front Runner,” along with television series “MacGyver” and “The Gifted.”
