Atlanta meeting districts are located in some of Atlanta’s most vibrant neighborhoods where visitors find charm, character and friendly people who keep attendees coming back time and again.

Within Atlanta’s unique and vibrant meeting districts, attendees can easily use their free time to explore all that Atlanta has to offer. From Downtown’s famous Peachtree Street – the main artery connecting these districts from south to north – to Midtown, the city’s heart of the arts, to Buckhead, the Beverly Hills of the East, visitors can simply step off the sidewalks of Peachtree Street to see what makes Atlanta special.
Downtown Atlanta is filled with hotels and restaurants, special event venues and attractions that thrive in the city’s big-event culture. From Centennial Olympic Park to Georgia World Congress Center and Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart, Atlanta is the ultimate meetings destination for any conference, event or convention. Downtown is also surrounded by a collection of neighborhoods that give the city its true character. They’re home to some of the best restaurants and nightlife and a vibe that creates an authentic Atlanta experience.
Just up Peachtree Street, the city’s residential core is lined with luxury high-rises, hotels and historic homes hidden beneath a canopy of trees. It’s the Heart of the Arts and is home to some of the classics, ranging from the Fox Theatre to the High Museum of Art. Midtown has always celebrated diversity — in a combination of commerce and community that defines Georgia as The Empire State of the South.
A little farther up Peachtree Street is Atlanta’s most prestigious ZIP code, where mansions meet magnolias to create some of the city’s most stunning landscapes. Buckhead is home to many of Atlanta’s most legendary restaurants and luxury hotels. It’s where Peachtree Street becomes Rodeo Drive East in an international shopping destination unrivaled anywhere in the South.
Meeting planners looking for convenience, accessibility, affordability and a welcoming destination will find it all in Atlanta’s airport area. Perfectly positioned just outside of Atlanta, this district is minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Less than 20 minutes by car or by MARTA, attendees have quick access to the heart of Atlanta’s tourism and convention hub.
