The Georgia International Convention Center or GICC, opened in April 2009, is the second largest convention center in the U.S. state of Georgia: second only to the Georgia World Congress Center. It is located at 2000 Convention Center Concourse, just off Camp Creek Parkway (S.R. 6) and Roosevelt Highway (U.S. 29) in College Park. The Convention Center is accessible from the Airport MARTA station (via a connection to the ATL Skytrain), Interstate 285, and Interstate 85.

It has a number of exhibit halls, meeting rooms and ballrooms that can be rented. Behind the Convention Center, the Atlanta Airport people-mover called ATL Skytrain, connects airport patrons with the new rental car complex, four hotel accommodations, amd restaurants at the Gateway Center of the Georgia International Convention Center.

Previous location[edit]

Prior to 2003, the Georgia International Convention Center was located behind and connected with the Sheraton Atlanta Airport Hotel on Riverdale Road. However, because of runway expansion at the airport, they were forced to move to the current location.[1]
