2016 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo

With the nickname “Capital of the New South”, it’s no surprise that Atlanta has so much draw as seen by the 51 million visitors the city hosts annually for the purposes of business and/or leisure. While attendees of the 2016 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo may have already finalized their itineraries for the conference kicking-off in a couple days, some may want to make a few revisions to make time for these must-see sites and eats of Atlanta.

Hang with the Fish
Atlanta is home to one of the largest aquariums in the world, the Georgia Aquarium. What’s also significant about this locale? It’s where the 2016 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo Tuesday Night Party will take place.  If you’re not already registered for the Tuesday Night party, register now or stop by the registration booth to add this fun event to your itinerary.  Also, ask about the optional behind the scenes tour from one of the Facility Engineers of the aquatic filtration system.

Indulge in Southern Fare
If you love food, be thankful this year’s Annual Meeting is in Atlanta. Filled with creative concepts, Atlanta has a vast number of restaurants to satisfy anyone’s cravings.
