Atlanta: The City You Never Knew

How to describe our GSX 2020 host city?

Convenient. One of the busiest and best airports in the world and 80 percent of the U.S. population lives within a two-hour flight. Visitors can roll into Downtown directly from the airport by riding Atlanta’s public rail system, MARTA.

Vibrant. In addition to the multitude of major league sports teams (and the Football Hall of Fame), the recently refreshed Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium, and World of Coca-Cola, Atlanta also boasts world-class, chef-run restaurants, a modern-day trolley that carries passengers from downtown to the eastside, and a 22-mile pedestrian walkway that rings the city, among other attractions. It’s also nicknamed the “Hollywood of the South” providing the backdrop to many films (be on the look out for familiar scenes around town) including The Blind Side, Flight, Identity Thief, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay—Part 1, Sully, The Divergent Series, Hidden Figures, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Baby Driver, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.

Diverse. Beyond the city’s core, Atlanta’s  neighborhoods are packed with personality—with areas appealing to foodies, design enthusiasts, shoppers, music, and more. It’s also a focal point for the American civil rights movement, and is home to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

Hospitality. Atlanta welcomes more than 1 million international visitors each year. Seventy-one countries have representation in Atlanta through a consulate or trade office, giving it a diverse economy. From arts and culture to music and cuisine, the city is full of multi-cultural opportunities for everyone.

Atlanta sits at the intersection of Southern charm, creativity and sophistication. It is easy to fall in love with this beautiful city—its world-class attractions, award-winning dining and hidden wonders—and be inspired by the city’s endless possibilities.
