Conference Services at Georgia Tech was named Best City Center Venue and Best Venue for Transportation Access by Unique Venues, a marketing service that pairs one-of-a-kind venues with meeting planners looking for non-traditional spaces. Groups with non-profit status or an educational mission can live in the middle of a thriving city at affordable rates in late May to the end of July by working with Conference Services at Georgia Tech.
Best City Center Venue
Our campus is located in the heart of midtown Atlanta, and by having a summer conference or institute on our college campus, clients benefit from the central site at an affordable price point.
Best Venue for Transportation Access
In the heart of Midtown Atlanta, Georgia Tech has three major interstates within five miles of campus, and two MARTA train stations adjacent to Georgia Tech campus with easy access to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world's busiest airport. Hartsfield-Jackson reaches 225 destinations in 51 countries, serves 250,000 passengers a day, and sees nearly 2,500 arrivals and departures per day. 80% of the U.S. population is within a two-hour direct flight to Atlanta.
"Congratulations to Georgia Institute of Technology and the Housing & Conference Services team for these awards. They are pushing the envelope, challenging peers in new, innovative ways and providing services and benefits that are new and haven’t been done before," remarked Michele Nichols, Founder of Unique Venues. "There is strength in our number and power in our collective presence thanks to venues like Georgia Institute of Technology."
