Editor’s Note: The Progress Report is a new unConventional quarterly series that explores the relationship between Central Atlanta Progress/Atlanta Downtown Improvement District and the Georgia World Congress Center Authority.

Be it bicycle infrastructure, sustainability efforts, the visitor experience, or talking about the great things happening in our neighborhood, CAP/ADID is grateful for its enduring, generative relationship with the GWCCA.
