By car

Atlanta has long been heralded as the hub of the Southeast. As the region’s geographic center, Atlanta is one of the most accessible cities for drivers, as three major intersections converge in the downtown area. Atlanta is accessible by Interstates 20, 75, 85 and Georgia 400. The I-285 forms a beltway around the city.


All 2016 Key Club International convention attendees must stay at the convention hotel.
