About Atlanta

At every turn, rich Atlanta history is revealed through the people and events that grew this settlement into an international city. The roads you travel through Atlanta were worn from the Native Americans who first called this land home. The beautiful and serene greenspaces once were the battlefields of a nation torn apart in civil war. From the many railroad tracks crossing the area to the skyscrapers lining Peachtree Street to the world's busiest airport, the story of two centuries of changing Atlanta, Georgia history unfolds. The spirit of Atlanta and the ideals of their people reflect those of the courageous and visionary leaders of our past and present.

What a great city for this NAGC Convention theme: “Great Minds Leading the Way.” Click here to find out more about all that Atlanta and vicinity have to offer, including discounts on attractions!

About the Georgia World Congress Center

The Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) is centrally located in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The NAGC Convention events take place in Building C.

The GWCC is located in the convention corridor of downtown Atlanta, next to a multitude of restaurants and attractions. The center is easily accessible from both Interstate 20 and the Connector (Interstates 75/85). With Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the GWCC is accessible by 80 percent of the American population in two hours or less. The GWCC campus is served by two MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) stations.

The Georgia World Congress Center offers a Courtesy Shuttle Service linking you to and from our eight parking lots and the main entrances of the GWCC.  Look for the Courtesy Shuttle signs located at all eight parking lots.

Don’t Go Around the Block

When NAGC plans for the Annual Convention we negotiate with the hotels to block a sufficient number of rooms for attendees. We want you to feel safe and secure and to enjoy the hospitality of quality, upscale lodging, convenient to the convention center. You deserve it!

Keep in mind that if NAGC does not fulfill our contractual obligation with these hotels, NAGC will be required to pay significant financial penalties, which will affect registration fees for future NAGC Conventions.
Please support your professional association by making your reservation with the official convention hotels via the housing bureau.
