The world is here.

Even before the 1996 Olympics put Atlanta on the world's map, Global Atlanta Publisher Phil Bolton saw globalization taking place in his backyard.

That sparked a news innovation that remains unique to this day: covering international business from a local perspective.

Two decades later, we remain the only publication devoted to this important niche in Atlanta and Georgia.

Through personal, in-depth reporting published on our website and summarized in our weekly email newsletter, Global Atlanta tracks how local companies are engaging with the global economy and how foreign enterprises are fueling Atlanta's rise as an international business center.

Now published solely online, GlobalAtlanta.com knits together Atlanta's disparate international communities, revealing its ties with the world while helping local readers navigate the nuances of the global economy.

Our international calendar is the most comprehensive source for the latest academic, business and cultural events around the city.

Readers can expect to a steady stream of articles on cross-border business, education, culture and trade with a focus on "actionable" content. We've always sought to inspire emails, phone calls, event attendance and personal connections. Our only bias is toward promoting Atlanta as a global business center.

5 Ways Global Atlanta is Different

Relationship Reporting

Global Atlanta doesn't practice press-release journalism. We make personal connections with article subjects and follow up as stories develop, often reaching deep into our 20-year archives for background details.

Connectivity

Atlanta is a big place with a growing contingent of international companies and organizations. GlobalAtlanta.com is the online resource where they all come together.

We provide contact information within articles and devote sections of our website to listing companies, government offices, organizations and other resources so that readers can reach those who matter most to their business.

Depth

While other news sources swoop in to report on large international deals, Global Atlanta remains in the trenches, reporting on the day-to-day activities of companies of all sizes. We also provide the most complete coverage of Atlanta's diplomatic corps and travel abroad to provide on-the-ground insight from key markets.

Originality

For some websites, typing up a story means clicking copy and paste. At Global Atlanta, all of our content is original, produced at the highest journalistic standards by our devoted editors and writers. We believe in recycling, just not with news stories.

Relevance

Daily updates on our website, also distributed via Twitter, Facebook and the Global Atlanta iPhone app (to be relaunched soon), keep readers apprised of the latest events and business transactions, as well as analysis of trends in Atlanta.
