Atlanta, Georgia, combines the entertainment, educational, and economic opportunities of an international city with the flavor and personality of close-knit, eclectic neighborhoods. As one of the fastest-growing high-tech urban centers in the country, metro Atlanta boasts nearly 13,000 technology companies that are leading the way in technology design, implementation and innovation. In recent years, Atlanta has become one of the world's elite tech cities and was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the top three cities in the country to soon become a tech mecca.
Today Atlanta is a thriving metropolis with Southern charm and world-class sophistication. Atlanta is also home to many professional sports teams including the Atlanta Braves baseball team, the Atlanta Falcons football team, the Atlanta Hawks basketball team and the Atlanta United soccer team. Both the Braves and Atlanta United have home games during the July symposium.
Other major industry segments include bioscience (with global health organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention making Atlanta their home base), supply chain management (thanks to the city's geographic location) and mobile technology (making Atlanta the number one ranked mobile-friendly city in the country), among others.
Atlanta is an education hub, with more than 60 colleges and universities located in the metro area, including Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, Morehouse and Emory. Atlanta is one of the top 10 cities for recent grads (NerdWallet) due to its low cost of living and high salaries.
Atlanta began as a railroad terminus and remains a transportation hub, but with a 21st-century, global approach. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the world, and 80 percent of the U.S. population lives within a two-hour flight. Visitors can roll into Downtown directly from the airport by riding Atlanta's public rail system, MARTA.
