This bold and contemporary convention center is a moving experience of air and light. Seven metal “sails” lean skyward to mark the grand entrance. Inspired by its location at the doorstep of a major aviation center, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and surrounded by 32 hotels with rooms in every price range, the GICC appears a mix of winged shapes and hard edges. Public area and meeting facilities are accented by a décor of unique fabrics, fine hardwood, add the distinctive pattern and vivid colors of woven carpet. GICC is two-minutes via ATL Sky Train automated people mover from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Take the train to GICC Gateway stop then take elevator down to ground level. The center is just outside the station.
