    This year's Summit will be a ?hybrid? event, with a limited number of in-person attendees at the Classic Center in Athens, as well as on-line attendees. An online platform is being designed that will offer an enhanced, engaging and interactive streaming experience. The in-person event will follow ACEC Georgia?s established COVID-19 guidelines for in-person events (you can read ACEC Georgia's COVID-19 Event Policy HERE) . 

    In-Person Attendees:
    The entire Classic Center will be utilized for this event, but attendance is limited to 550, with 150 of those seats reserved for GDOT employees. Normal Summit attendance is over 1,200, so this year?s in-person attendance will be drastically smaller than in previous years. Grand Hall will once again be used for the General Session, with tables set for four people and properly distanced. Ingress and egress as well as breaks will be staggered to allow for social distancing and masks will be required unless you are seated at your table. Breakout sessions will be held in various locations throughout the Classic Center. All food and beverage will be served by event staff in accordance to CDC guidelines. All sessions will also be recorded so that both in-person and virtual attendees will be able to watch all of the breakout sessions, maximizing the amount of information and PDH hours participants will receive from the event. 

    Online Attendees:
    The online version of the Summit will be designed to give attendees the feeling that they are ?in the room.? Audio Visual investments have been tripled to make the entire room visible to virtual attendees. Online attendees will also be able to actively participate in Q&A sessions and be seen and heard by the in-person attendees. They will also be able to interact with vendors and each other. All sessions will also be recorded so that both in-person and virtual attendees will be able to watch all of the breakout sessions, maximizing the amount of information and PDH hours participants will receive from the event. 

    Sponsorship and Registration:
    The best way to ensure your ability to attend the in-person event is to become a sponsor. Details can be found in the link below. While we intend to make any seats that have not been reserved by sponsors available for general admission registration on March 1, 2021, due to the limited number of seats available and anticipated demand, it is likely that there may not be any additional in-person seats available for purchase.

    In-person exhibitors will set up in the Atrium of the Classic Center; space is limited to 23 tables. Exhibitors are provided with a six-foot table and two chairs (or the space equivalent). Exhibiting is available by sponsorship only. Exhibit booths must be reserved at the time that you commit to sponsorship; having the ability to exhibit as a benefit of sponsorship does not reserve your booth. Electricity availability is limited and must be reserved at the time of commitment (first come, first served). Exhibiting on the online platform is also available through sponsorship. 

    For information on how to attend this event in-person or sponsoring this event, contact Jennifer Head at Jennifer.Head@acecga.org, or click HERE. If any seats remain, they will be available for registration on March 17th!
