Georgia World Congress Center Has Grown into the World's Largest Convention, Sports and Entertainment Destination
The Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) is located in Atlanta and encompasses 12 exhibition halls with 1.4 million square feet of space, more than 100 meeting rooms, two ballrooms, three fixed-seat auditoriums, and two grand plazas. GWCC stands as the fourth-largest convention center in the U.S., hosts more than a million guests every year and was the first state-owned center of its kind in the nation.
The Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which is responsible for the development of the Georgia Dome, Centennial Olympic Park, and the new Mercedes Benz Stadium, operates the facility. The GWCC is situated in downtown Atlanta across from the CNN Center and Philips Arena and is serviced by Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority’s bus and subway lines.
GWCC is home to numerous conventions and other trade shows, and hosts activities in coordination with other facilities, including the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Football Fanfare during the SEC Championship Game and Wrestlemania Axxess during Wrestlemania XXVII.
GWCC consists of three buildings, all connected by pedestrian bridges. Building A houses a 1,740-seat auditorium and three halls. Building B, the largest of the three, consists of five halls and a 33,000 square-foot ballroom. Building C contains the four remaining halls and the 25,700-foot Georgia Ballroom.
