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.

Georgia World Congress Center Take Green Initiatives


In early 2017, the GWCCA unveiled recent upgrades including a new central plant and a new energy management system designed to monitor, analyze and maintain all the GWCCA systems available for remote adjustment via web-connected mobile devices. These upgrades were financed through guaranteed performance contracting with Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services. This creative financing allowed the GWCC to take advantage of future energy and operational savings to finance the project in addition to guaranteed funding by Trane if the projected savings are not met.

Additional updates include, new terrazzo flooring, LED lighting, upgrade to the facility water features and the addition of a solar canopy in the marshalling yard that shades 200 vehicles and will generate 890,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. This electricity ties back into the Georgia Power electrical grid for redistribution. This solar harvesting along with that on the Mangum Deck were installed as part of the initiative to attain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification awarded by the US Green Building Council for buildings rated for design, operation and maintenance of environmentally-friendly facilities. The GWCC is the world’s largest LEED Silver-certified convention center.
