Dining Suggestions

Please see our separate page of local dining options for lunch (for those who need it) and for dinner here.

Travel and Transporation

The event venue is located in Midtown Atlanta, which is easily accessible from Hartsfield-Jackson airport via rideshare, taxi, or the MARTA rail system. We will be meeting in the Tech Square Research Building (TSRB). Please see below for a picture of the entrance to TSRB.

To take MARTA and the Tech Trolley to the Tech Square Research Building

(Additional map to TSRB

  1. Take the RED or GOLD train to the 10th street MARTA station. Either line will stop at the North Avenue or 10th street stations. Tickets are $2.50 each way, and it is not worth using the MARTA app at this point in time. 
  2. At the south exit of the train station, the Tech Trolley (a bus) will stop and pick up riders every 10-15 minutes. You can check where buses are using the Georgia Tech bus tracking website at It is also about a 10 minute walk from the station to TSRB.
  3. If you are taking the trolley, ride it 1 stop from the 10th street station to TSRB. It will be on your right. 
  4. Please just let the desk staff know you are attending the Summit in the 1st floor event space.

To take an Uber/Lyft toTSRB

It takes about 40-50 minutes to get from the airport to TSRB via the train and the Tech Trolley. However, if you are in a hurry, you can take a Lyft/Uber which takes about 25-30 minutes once you are picked up. 

Key note: The rideshare pickups keep moving at the Atlanta airport so please check signs. As of September 2023, they are currently on the ground floor (down one floor from baggage claim) and in the North Hourly parking lot.

Hotel Information

The CRNCH Summit does not have a reserved hotel block for attendees. Most of the hotels in Midtown Atlanta (North Avenue – 14th Street) are reasonable as far as price, ratings, and distance to campus. You may want to either select the GT Hotel or a hotel near the 10th Street MARTA station so that you can walk to the Summit location.
