The Conference Center - ExteriorThe Conference Center @ GPTC is a perfectly designed venue for special events. Located on our DeKalb Campus, it’s an excellent choice for meetings, training sessions, conferences, weddings, receptions, and parties. As soon as you enter the atrium lobby, you will agree that it’s something special and a welcomed addition to the community. With natural light beaming from its windows that reach from the ceiling to its porcelain tiles floors, it is open and spacious. Hanging from its 18 foot high ceilings are classic, pendant bowl lamps with fluorescent lighting. The atrium also features a wet bar equipped with electrical outlets and storage space. It is perfect space for light receptions and intimate gatherings of all types.


With ceiling mounted projectors, automatic screens and wireless capabilities, come prepared to enjoy the best audio/visual experience. Your DJ can spin ‘old school’ or play your soothing background music from a laptop.

Our main room has the ability to divide into five smaller rooms or remain one large space. This flexibility allows for a variety of layouts to accommodate training sessions for 40, wedding receptions of 200 or elegant banquets for 300. Over the past few years, we have been the chosen venue for weddings, fairs, fashion shows, family reunions, and a variety of other celebrations.


Meeting SpaceFor smaller meetings, the Conference Center offers classrooms A and B. Each room is perfect for a group of twelve (12) or together, twenty can meet as they view presentations on the wall mounted TV’s.

Conveniently located less than two miles from I-285 and an Atlanta MARTA rail station, we are over 10,000 square feet of meeting space just waiting to provide you with an exceptional business or social function.
