COLLEGE PARK, GEORGIA: The Global Gateway to Atlanta and the Southeast

Just 10 minutes from downtown Atlanta, and adjacent to the world’s busiest airport, lies College Park, Georgia. On the surface, College Park appears to be a typical small town suburb, complete with a quaint downtown area, and Georgia’s 4th largest urban historic home district. But many people are finding out that College Park is also one of the most convenient and unique meetings and conventions destinations in the country.

College Park is home to the world’s busiest airport, and also to Georgia’s second largest convention center, the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC). But what truly sets the GICC apart is the ATL SkyTrain, a free, light rail train that takes attendees and travelers right from the Atlanta Airport to the GICC campus in under 3 minutes, making it one of the only convention centers in the U.S., directly connected to an airport. College Park also boasts over 5,000 world-class hotel rooms, and most hotels offer airport free shuttle service.

The Meet College Park, Georgia CVB (Meet CPGA) is the city of College Park’s official destination marketing organization, and our experienced and enthusiastic team is at the ready to show clients how easy it is to meet in College Park. meetcpga.com
