I recently attended a trade show here. The venue is very large, but it is difficult to exit after the show ends each day. On multiple days, when everyone was leaving the show, the facility had multiple levels of escalators, but only one escalator on each level was set to go up. This caused a significant delay in exiting the building, and eventually someone pushed the emergency stop on the other two escalators at each level so that more people could get out.It is also difficult to get to the venue, as traffic backs up at the entrance where people are getting out and have to cross the road where vehicles are leaving. Additionally, there are often multiple other events happening at the same time, which can make it even more difficult to leave the venue.Overall, I was disappointed with the experience of exiting the venue after the trade show. I would recommend that the venue management take steps to improve the exit process, such as running all of the escalators in the up direction and providing more staff to direct traffic and assist with crossing the road.

This place is huge inside! I was there with my family for the #NACSshow. It has plenty of bathrooms, lots of classrooms, several levels and buildings that are all connected. The main convention floor had room for thousands of booths(yes, several thousand vendors). The parking structure was being worked on, so that was confusing as far as getting to the right building. We paid $15 for parking, but I'm sure it varies based on the event.

Large hallways with escalators and elevators. Bathrooms were actively maintained during the event. Food, fire, fun I came for InvestFest and had a great time. Easily accessible from inside the Omni. They had CVS vending machines and other restaurants and snacks. Pretty nice.

This is a nice place to go and grab something for lunch if you are in the area. It is right in the center of many big venues, including Centennial Olympic Park. There are several quick order restaurants to choose from and it was not crowded at all when I visited. If you are local, it is fairly was to drive to this area with plenty of parking but check to see what events might be taking place as that will effect traffic.

Very nice and huge convention center. It's so spacious and humongous. Basically, where all the huge cons and events take place in the city of Atlanta.

5 stars for the cure. 3 stars for sound where we sat next to the sound man. 1 star according to everyone that sat some where else in the arena.This place is a case of an architect designing a way to fit the maximum amount of people in the minimum amount of space. It felt like being corralled into an airplane.Airplanes aren't great for live concerts... unless you sit next to the sound guy.Oh... and eek for older Robert Smith. Looks like one of my uncles that always made me sit in his lap while he told me dirty jokes. In the fun way.

Came for the Peachtree Road Race Expo, and while I don’t agree with how they funneled the traffic in and closed a number of parking lots. Once we got in, they were very organized and the flow of people through the expo was great! A specific al heck in for each corral we t great and we were through there very quickly!

I was there during MomoCon. I didn’t go to the event but just was sightseeing & passed through. It’s a really big Convention center with a bar & a food concession. The food area also has outdoor seating, which nice to sit outside.

The Georgia World Congress Center is one of the world's largest convention centers. It also has a ton of amenities for rent.It's not the least expensive place to hold a meeting, but if you either have a first class budget or 30,000 guests, it's the way to go in Atlanta.Wheelchair accessibility is not hard, but it's about elevators.Know a couple of things. One, GWCC is a union hall. Two, almost all the instruments are analog. If you want digital equipment. You'll want to contract it.

HAIR SHOW 2023... easy parking, a lot of space for this type of event, and it wasn't too packed this year (which worked for me having a newborn and all).. this year, they had a space where you could sit and play video games, kids play in the bouncers, and more food options...

Bigger than it looks because it's mostly underground! Great venue for a conference and there are automatic water bottle filling stations, but free WiFi is only available in the lobby (bad for us visiting Canadians).It's not listed on maps, but get a coffee (and breakfast) from the Southern Roots coffee shop in the Building B lobby. The staff are super friendly. The 5* rating is dedicated to them.

Lives up to its name as #3 largest convention center in the US. Wear comfortable shoes because you will be doing a lot of walking. This could be very difficult for anyone with disabilities or problems walking long distances.A restaurant with full bar is located at the entrance to buildings B and C. There is basically no parking in this area so you will have to use public parking near Centennial Park unless you are staying at a local hotel. Plan to wait a long time for a cab or Uber services. Extremely busy area since it is located directly across from State Farm Arena (Hawks) and Mercedes Benz Field (Falcons and NCAA sports). Traffic around the area is gridlocked after events- up to 1 hour to go 1 mile! Plenty of food carts and restrooms (very clean). The temperature in the facility was kept on the cool side inside the convention hall floor.

Not impressed with this place. I came from Tampa, FL for a volleyball tournament, and let's say, I hate Atlanta. I had the late wave in the tournament (3:30-10:30pm) and was struggling to find food for dinner. I was quite surprised that most restaurants open for my 30 min break were closed at 6:30!! My family and I had to walk halfway through downtown Atlanta to find dinner because all the restaurants were closed in building A of the Georgia World Congress Center. I don't like this place and hope I don't have anymore tournaments here.

Great place for fun especially during a Comic Convention! We had so much fun being here and the people all around were amazing. Go as you are or as a character from a favorite show, movie, comic, anime whatever you please! This year I was Oogie Boogie! Thanks to all the staff members, cosplayers as well as the celebrity guests for making it a great Comic-Con! Keep up the amazing work ❤️
