Parking:

For local attendees driving to the GSU Buckhead Center each day, AAMGA will provide a parking validation at no cost to you. Please email Donna (donna@aamga.org) by Monday, June 19, 2017 to request a parking pass.  The Tower Place 200 parking deck is located to the left of the front entrance. Only Tower Place 20 parking can be validated.

Out of town attendees who plan to park at the hotel should contact the Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta-Buckhead directly. Registered participants can take advantage of the hotel's self-parking with in-and-out access for $23 per night.

Driving:

GPS Users: The street address of 3348 Peachtree Road is NOT the best landmark to use for directions. If you are using Google maps or a GPS unit, input Tower Place Drive NE 30326 (or the intersection of Tower Place Drive and Lenox Road). Then follow the directions below to locate the correct parking deck.

There are Gates on Tower Place Drive that block access to the building from Piedmont between 7am-9:30am and 4:30pm-6:30pm. During these times, it is imperative that you enter from the Lenox Road intersection on Tower Place Drive.
