SC holds most function and meeting space in the major hotels located near the convention center. The space is made available to contracted exhibitors through a process that begins in January of the conference year. For companies that also submit a sleeping room block request, we attempt to locate as many of those rooms as possible within the same hotel. The hotels with which SC holds contracts for function space are:
- Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center
- Westin Peachtree Plaze
- Hyatt Regency Atlanta
- Hilton Atlanta
- W Atlanta – Downtown
- Ritz Carlton
- Courtyard Atlanta Downtown
- Sheraton Atlanta
Generally, the SC contracts with these hotels includes a no-charge for space rental clause; however exhibitors are expected to purchase catering and/or AV through the hotel. Assignments will be made by an authorized contractor in an iterative process according to each company’s accumulated “SC exhibitor priority points” and past history of usage. Once all requests have been processed, SC will release the assignments and unused space back to the hotels who will then work directly with exhibitors on details and a contract.
There may be a penalty for reserving function space and then not using it. Deadlines and details will be provided to all exhibitors holding signed agreements with SC20.
