What is the best thing about the GICC?
Trick question! There are lots of things that make our venue great, starting with the fact we are the only convention center connected to a major airport.
Not to mention the GICC is the second largest convention center in Georgia, totaling to 400,000 square feet with three convention hotels onsite!
In other words, there is plenty of space at the GICC for your next event!
We have three divisions to select from: the exhibit halls, the ballroom and the meeting rooms. There are four exhibit halls with same square footages and pre-function spaces. Our ballroom has three lobby areas and eight salons that can be joined or separated. The meeting rooms are comprised of six suites with the same square footage and three different boardrooms with two different square footages.
The GICC can be used for many events and for different phases during events. You can set up the venue according to how many sessions you have for a conference. If you're hosting an exhibition, reception or networking, you can use the lobby for break and refreshment stations.
You can even divide up the venue space to use part of it for the day-time activities and the other spaces for the night-time events. This way you do not have to worry about guests having to wait while setting up.
There are countless ways your event can be set up at our spacious venue. Check out the Planners section of our website for more information. Need ideas and inspiration?
