Are you planning on attending the groundbreaking BIA Kelsey LEADING IN LOCAL: The National Impact conference in Atlanta, May 7-9? If so, seriously consider extending your stay in order to take advantage of all the amazing experiences Atlanta has to offer.
The Fox Experience
Designed in the late 1920s, The Fox Theatre is not only a historic landmark, but the premiere venue for live entertainment. You’re in luck! For a belly aching night of laughter, Saturday, May 10th comic actor Mike Epps’ After Dark Tour is playing at The Fox. If you can’t stay after, at least sign-up for a guided tour to re-live the history that embodies the Fox Theatre.
Wake Up and Smell the Atlanta Botanical Garden
Aren’t you glad BIA Kelsey chose May? The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are in full bloom. Enjoy artist Philis Haas’ The Four Seasons art sculptures, towering over 15’ tall, made of oversized natural elements including flowers, fruits, and vegetables representing their respective months of origin. Or hop on over to see the new Imaginary Worlds exhibition sculptures including four frolicking frogs.
MLK Jr. Well Deserved Visit
Inspire yourself as a leader in this world, and pay tribute to MLK Jr. You have the rare opportunity to see Dr. King’s Nobel Peace Prize while visiting Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site & Sweet Auburn District. Explore his birth home and childhood, walk in his steps and listen to his words in Ebenezer Baptist Church, where he served as a pastor.
The World of Coca-Cola. Enjoy.
This is your chance. You can’t say “It’s the real thing,” unless you’ve tasted Coca-Cola out of an extraordinary 1880s soda fountain and taken your picture with the iconic 7ft tall Coca-Cola Polar Bear in Atlanta! Not to mention, you get to learn about the legend of their secret formula and taste over 100 flavors from around the world.
Been to Atlanta plenty of times? Impress your new friends from the conference with a Hot Air Balloon Ride over Georgia! Or you can simply take a peek at the calendar for once in a lifetime events:
Brit Floyd Discovery World Tour - May 8
Atlanta Braves vs. Chicago Cubs - May 9-11
Shaky Knees Music Festival - May 9-11
Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour - May 10-11
We just hope we’re one of your “new friends” at the 2014 BIA Kelsey Leading In Local conference - we’ve always wanted to take a hot air balloon ride.
