Few convention centers in the United States are as massive—or as popular—as the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC). Located near downtown Atlanta, this venue sprawls across an entire campus designed to host large trade shows, conferences, and events.  

Venue Breakdown   

Within its 4.1 million square feet of total space, the GWCC offers a wide range of halls, rooms, and areas perfect for events, such as:  

  • 1.5 million square feet of flexible space  
  • 98 meeting rooms  
  • 2 boardrooms  
  • 2 ballrooms 
  • 3 auditoriums  
  • 3 outdoor event plazas 

Since this venue hosts many large trade shows, it offers three expo-specific buildings:  

  • Building A: 3 exhibit halls, 29 meeting rooms, 1 boardroom, and 1 auditorium  
  • Building B: 5.5 exhibit halls, 47 meeting rooms, 1 boardroom, and 1 ballroom 
  • Building C: 4.5 exhibit halls, 23 meeting rooms, 2 auditoriums, and 1 ballroom  

Although the GWCC is happy to play host for multiple simultaneous events, some large international shows take up two—and sometimes three—of these immense buildings.  

Campus Information  

Attendees and exhibitors can take a break from their convention to see some great Atlanta sites without leaving the immediate area thanks to the 220-acre campus created by the Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA). Whether it’s a stroll through Centennial Olympic Park featuring the Fountain of Rings, a tour of the World of Coca-Cola, or a nod to your favorite NCAA team at the College Football Hall of Fame, you’ll be in close walking distance to all sorts of enjoyable attractions.  


Since opening its doors in 1976, the GWCC has evolved from a 350,000 square foot exhibition space to the behemoth it is today. Renovations and expansions in 1985, 1992, and 2002 increased its space, upgraded its technology, and enhanced its amenities.
