New Event Solutions
Atlanta is open and ready to host your event! Meetings and conventions held in Georgia are asked to follow 21 specific requirements outlined on pages 50-52 in Governor Brian Kemp’s executive order.
Mayor Bottoms issued an executive order requiring face coverings in public buildings and outdoor areas within the city of Atlanta where social distancing is not possible. Masks are mandatory at all times inside Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Private businesses may mandate mask requirements at their discretion.

Georgia World Congress Center
Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) is the first facility in the U.S. to achieve GBAC STAR accreditation. The designation recognizes the convention center’s commitment to cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention. GBAC is the leading trade association for the cleaning industry. GWCC leaders are also co-chairing an International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) Events Industry Health & Safety Advisory Council focused on venue hygiene, sanitation and employee training best practices, furthering its leadership role in helping set guidance for delivering a safe and healthy environment for all event venues in the industry.
The facility has also placed additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the building, increased cleaning frequency for commonly contacted surfaces and amplified handwashing protocols. GWCC posted signage throughout the facility and on digital monitors inside and outside the facility detailing further precautions recommended by the CDC.
Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart
AmericasMart is working with reputable cleaning companies that concentrate on industrial hygiene to develop enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures to roll out across its campus. An emphasis will be placed on high touch areas and locations where traffic flows are greatest.
