We are excited that even though we had to find a new venue, we were able to keep php[tek] in its new home, Atlanta, Empire City of the South. In fact, we are moving the conference downtown based upon feedback! So attendees will be able to more easily explore what hidden treasures Atlanta has to offer. We were able to negotiate a great deal for the conference at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, a venue with tons of conference space, giving us lots of room to grow in the years to come.
The downtown Sheraton is well positioned in the area, being just far enough away from the tourist areas that you don’t have issues being overrun, while still having everything you’d want to see in easy walking distance. If you aren’t interested in walking, you can also use the MARTA (Atlanta’s light rail system) to move around at a flat rate of $2.50 per ride. The MARTA is also the cheapest way to get from the airport to the hotel. Just get off the Peachtree Center stop and you are just a couple blocks away. Of course taxi cabs and Uber are available, and the hotel does have self-parking for people who are looking to drive in.

We have negotiated a fantastic deal for our attendees. When moving from the previous venue to downtown, trying to keep the price affordable was our primary concern. We over-achieved, and negotiated a rate cheaper than last year! Rooms this year are available at only $119 a night. We realize that Atlanta is huge (as big as some states), and we wanted to ensure that we had good rates for not only locals who may want to avoid the commute each morning but the people flying in from all over the world.

We looked through every possible venue throughout Atlanta, giving extra consideration to any location downtown or midtown (which were both highly preferred in our exit survey from last year). In the end, the Sheraton Downtown was able to make us an amazing offer, allowing us to keep the cost for the conference from rising while providing more value to our attendees!
