Atlanta – November 1, 2022 – The Emory Conference Center Hotel,
Atlanta’s first LEED-certified conference center recently completed a
multimillion reimagination of the property, including redesigned
conference space with the latest advances in technology and audio-visual

that put people first. The property, which officially re-opens on
November 10 with an event for Emory University officials, hotel owners,

modern amenities designed to invigorate the mind, inspire innovation and

bring the outdoors in to improve psychological, physical, and emotional
well-being. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow guests to experience the
outdoors from the comfort of nearly every meeting room in the conference
facility year-round regardless of the weather. Multiple outdoor event
spaces allow for fresh air, and all-inclusive conference packages help
groups escape to an environment specifically designed for relaxation,
gathering, and enjoyment.

anticipate evolving guest expectations,” said Peter Dunn, general
manager, the Emory Conference Center Hotel. “In designing the
enhancements, we worked closely with our customers who provided
invaluable input.”

Dunn continued, “I am proud to announce that we received 2022
Reader’s Choice Award for the sixth time from ConventionSouth
magazine, making us one of only 30 winners in the state of Georgia.”

In keeping with its eco-first roots, the redesign focused on using local
Atlanta designers and materials throughout the facility, including
furniture and fabrics, to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the
renovation’s construction timeline.

Along with cosmetic enhancements, the Emory Conference Center Hotel made
a significant investment in state-of-the-art AV and technology upgrades
to meet today’s demand for hybrid and in-person events. Upgrades
include 10K projection systems with wireless presentation capabilities,
video conferencing systems with built-in cameras for amphitheaters and
meeting rooms, improved high-speed internet, and more. Apart from the
conference spaces, high-tech touches include portals and connectivity in
communal break spaces, and a new house sound system throughout the North
and South Towers.
