With the busiest airport in the world, Atlanta is an international hub, and one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the US. Our conference venue, The Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, is located in the heart of the city center, minutes from a wide range of dining, cultural and entertainment venues.

Along with galleries, museums and educational institutions, Atlanta has fostered a rich and dynamic environment for our conference.
