Dear Rotarians,

The 2017 RI Convention in Atlanta is fast approaching.  Most of you will be exhibiting in the House of Friendship and holding your annual meetings in conjunction with the convention. To maximize your experience, please review the following information.

Get up-to-date program information, plan your schedule, and connect with convention attendees using the Rotary Events app. Download the app for Apple or Android, or search for Rotary Events in the Apple, Android, Blackberry, or Amazon app store.


Rooms A406, A407, and A408 are dedicated for RAG and Fellowship meetings. Room A406 is set up conference style with capacity for 20, A407 is set banquet style with capacity for 50, and A408 is set up theater style with capacity for 100. In addition, each room will have an eight-foot long skirted table by the door to be used to display your publications, handouts, or to sign your attendees in. Please note the following:

As a reminder, these meeting rooms are equipped with a lectern, microphone, and water fountain. If you have made additional arrangements such as audiovisual or catering, do not forget to bring your confirmation forms with you, which includes contact information for changes or questions about your additions.


More than 55 Global Networking Groups (RAGs/Fellowships) will be exhibiting in the Convention’s House of Friendship.  You may pick up your exhibitor badges and wrist bands by visiting the Registration Hall between buildings A and B of the Georgia World Congress Center.

Please note: your booths are located near the entrances and exits to the general session hall. Anticipate a high volume of traffic, especially before and after the general sessions, and make arrangements to properly staff your booths during peak time. Please familiarize yourself with the convention schedule to anticipate exhibit hall traffic.

If you require additional chairs or have questions about your booth, visit the Freeman Exhibitor Services counters located outside of the House of Friendship in the AB Connector concourse.

Find information on public transportation, parking, and directions.

Purchase a daily parking permit online: If you buy the permit at least one day in advance, you’ll pay just $10 — a savings of $5.

Refer to the mobile app or visit to learn more about general session speakers, planned entertainment, opportunities for fellowship and service in the House of Friendship, breakout sessions, and ticketed events. Remember to check details about the Host Organization Committee events.

We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
