Due to the various policies and procedures in place due to the pandemic, meeting space at the Georgia World Congress Center will be reserved exclusively for EDGE 2021 events. As such, space for your events and meetings will be provided by the host hotels.
The overall process to reserve space remains the same as in previous years with the exception of a fee to reserve space. This fee will be waived this year. Venue contacts have been given the parameters of the affiliate events. The hotel partners will send event requests to CSCMP for approval of the events. This year, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center, The Ritz-Carlton Atlanta, The Westin Peachtree Plaza, Atlanta, and Hyatt Regency Atlanta will be able to assist you with your space needs. Along with this, Megan Wilkerson, with the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau, can assist you with space outside of the host hotels.
Here are the time frames in which events can occur:
|Event Ending By:||Event Starting After:|
|Sunday, September 19||5:30 pm||8:00 pm|
|Monday, September 20||8:00 am||6:30 pm|
