Go Global on the Atlanta Beltline With CEO Brian McGowan, GCIV and Global Atlanta
- This event has passed.
The Atlanta Beltline is an unprecedented revitalization project turning old railroad right-of-way into a 22-mile ring of trails and transit that connects neighborhoods and aims to set the stage for an inclusive urban future.
The $5 billion project is also a focal point of international attention — from urban planners, infrastructure investors and even foreign technology companies drawn to its role in the City’s transformation.
Now it’s your chance to see up close a gem hidden right under your nose. On April 19, crawl the Beltline with two of the city’s premier international organizations — both Beltline businesses — while learning from Atlanta Beltline Inc. CEO Brian McGowan why this is a once-in-a-generation economic development opportunity that will set Atlanta apart in the world.
We’ll start on the rooftop at New Realm Brewing on the Beltline for beer, food, networking and remarks from Mr. McGowan, then work our way down the Eastside Trail to the offices of the Georgia Council for International Visitors and then finishing up at Global Atlanta, learning how the nonprofit and news service each help drive Atlanta’s integration with the world in their own way.
Be ready to mingle with people of varying backgrounds from all over our global city, and bring your appetite, your walking shoes and an open mind.
Registration fee includes food and a drink ticket.
