Convention centers have a long history of hosting important events in our culture. They have served as the setting for everyone from presidents and CEOs, to educators and religious leaders, and even technology and the creative arts. Yet despite the prominence these great venues hold within our society, convention centers have a reputation for producing institutional-grade, mediocre food. Until now.
The Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) and Proof of the Pudding have teamed up to reinvent the food and beverage program at the GICC. This new venture is called CulinAero by Proof of the Pudding, and at its core is a commitment to restaurant-quality food made with fresh, sustainable ingredients.
“The GICC is an established leader in hosting events and now we’re ready to build a leading food and beverage program that will continue to enhance our reputation,” said Mercedes Miller, interim executive director, GICC. “There are a lot of associations and companies looking for meeting destinations that can serve restaurant-quality food made with fresh ingredients, and we believe the GICC can provide value to this market.”
The GICC may be the nation’s most accessible convention center. Connected to a major airport by the ATL SkyTrain, it is just as convenient by car — at the juncture of two major U.S. interstates. The heart of Atlanta is 10 minutes away by rental car or MARTA train. And the airport’s Rental Car Center links to the GICC by the ATL SkyTrain automated people mover.
