Helplful information for when you are booking and planning your trip to Atlanta, GA!
IB Workshops Travel Information
Your participation, all week, in every session is vital. Be advised that attendees must participate in all class sessions to receive their official IB certificate of attendance.
To ensure your full participation at the workshop from start to finish and ample travel time to and within Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, do not choose a flight departing Atlanta before 4:00 pm.
If you have not visited Atlanta before, our airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International, is the world's busiest! There are multiple terminals connected by a very efficient train. The airport is very large and spread out so you must allow enough time, once you get there, to deal with your luggage, make your way through security screening, get to your terminal on the passenger train, and then still reach your gate at the terminal.
Please be aware that Atlanta is largely not a pedestrian-friendly city. Our workshop venue is not easily accessible by public transportation or on foot. We strongly recommend renting a car for all your conference and leisure transportation needs during your visit.
If you have a car and plan to drive to our event site, North Atlanta High School (4111 Northside Pkwy NW, Atlanta, GA 30327), there is a multi-level parking structure with over 900 free spaces at your disposal.
CASIE has negotiated a discounted car rental rate with Enterprise Rent-A-Car/National Car Rental. To obtain this discount, click HERE and use group code XZ03314 when making your reservation.
Our public transportation system, MARTA, does not extend out to where our event and partner hotel is located and should not be counted on to provide your only means of transportation during your visit.
A courtesy shuttle will be available for participants to & from the conference site and ONLY our participating hotel partner (listed below) each day.
Taxis, Uber, and Lyft are plentiful and well-priced for travel all over Metro Atlanta.
CASIE has high standards for how we want our guests to be treated while at our workshop! To this end, we work very closely with outstanding area hotels to secure great prices for our event attendees.
Our partner hotel, the Embassy Suites by Hilton, Atlanta Galleria, is SOLD OUT during the week of our event, July 10-14.
Fortunately, the Galleria area has a number of other great lodging accommodations that are a short drive from our event site, North Atlanta High School (4111 Northside Pkwy NW, Atlanta, GA 30327).
Many of these hotels have in-house courtesy shuttle service that will drive guests within a 3-6 mile radius. We recommend you ask your hotel if their shuttle would get you to and from North Atlanta High School.
The following hotel list is not exhaustive in any way, and we do not have any arrangements with these properties for the summer, but we have worked with them in the past and are familiar with their locations and amenities. Some places we would stay at that you might check into are:
Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta Vinings/Galleria
Homewood Suites by Hilton Atlanta - Galleria/Cumberland
Hotel Indigo Atlanta - Vinings
Hyatt House Atlanta/Cobb Galleria
Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center
Sheraton Suites Galleria-Atlanta
