2017 Atlanta Event and Conferences

Living in Atlanta is fun…and busy. As you all know, there can be lots of things to do in a short weekend. Sometimes, our campus can feel like a little bubble inside the bustling city; however, as an event planner, it is worthwhile knowing what is going on around the city, especially if your guests need hotel rooms or transportation.

As the economy picks up, hoteliers and event venues are predicting a busy year for 2017.

Below are some dates that may be considered high demand (i.e., high rates or no availability) due to events occurring in Atlanta.
