What to Know Before You Go

We are just weeks away from the 2018 SMPS Southeastern Regional Conference in Atlanta! To make sure you are ready to HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK, here are few things you should know before you go!

How do I travel for SMPS SERC?
All conference sessions will occur at the Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta.  Check our Hotel/Travel page for more details on hotels, airports, and things to do nearby before and after the conference.

Parking Information at the Hotel

The daily valet rate is $38 for overnight parking ($42 for oversized vehicles.) Note that ONLY valet parking is available at the hotel; there is NO self-parking deck. We encourage out of town folks to ride-share from the airport. Renting a car plus parking will be cost prohibitive.

Who’s going and what do I bring?
SMPS SERC registration is filling up fast. We expect 200+ AEC marketing and business development professionals are scheduled to attend. THANK YOU to all who registered early to guarantee your seat in the room of one of the best marketing and business development conferences in the country!

The dress code for the conference is business casual. Temperatures in Atlanta are in the 60s during the day to the 40s at night.

Most importantly, bring plenty of business cards and be ready to network!

What’s in store for SMPS SERC?
We’ve got a fantastic lineup of presentations!


We’re also holding a contest! If you attended the 2017 SMPS SERC in Amelia Island, you may have received a squishy Peach as part of the promotions for the 2018 conference. If you still have one in your office, bring it along with you to this year’s conference to be entered for a special prize.

Attending the InDesign Preconference Workshop? Don’t forget to bring your laptop to this session. It will be a hands-on learning workshop.

How can we share what we’re learning at SMPS SERC?
We strongly encourage you to share the best things you’ve seen at #SMPSSunbuilt across social media! We’re on LinkedIn, Twitter (@SMPS_SERC), Facebook, and Instagram.

I think I’m ready for SMPS SERC …
Fantastic! We’re looking forward to seeing you. And if you still have questions, check our website or ask at check-in on Monday.
