Discover The ATL Airport District


The ATL Airport District is so much more than just a convenient place for a pit stop or layover. It’s a hotspot full of culture and personality; it’s a community rich in history; it’s a hub for sporting events and cycling; and it’s a premiere destination for business meetings, central to one of the world’s busiest airports. But yes—it’s also a great place to stretch your legs, grab a drink, and take a breath. 

Sandwiched between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the bright lights and hustle of Downtown Atlanta, we offer an authentic, slightly-off-the-beaten-path Southern experience to visitors, tourists, and event attendees alike—all while providing businesses and meeting planners valuable, unique advantages in efficiency and convenience. Want a convention center that’s attached directly to the airport by its own special train? Boom. Got it. Want to give your attendees the option of booking a hotel right on the convention center’s campus? Boom. Done. Want to be surrounded by neighborhoods filled with independent restaurants and businesses to explore? Boom. That’s the District.

Not Atlanta. Not the airport. Right in between.

If you want to get technical (and why not? Atlanta is the tech capital of the South), the ATL Airport District is comprised of four individual cities. College Park, East Point, Hapeville, and Union City all have their own unique personalities, but combined, they offer an exceptional collection of assets that distinguishes the District among business destinations: the ATL airport, Georgia's second-largest convention center, more than 7,000 hotel rooms, exceptional transit, and an eclectic mix of great restaurants. It’s all just minutes from everything that downtown Atlanta has to offer.

The District boasts all the amenities and conveniences of a big city (specifically, the tenth largest economic development in the United States!), combined with that eclectic urban flavor that keeps things fresh.
