Atlanta attractions for fun, entertainment, education during Clean’s off time

ATLANTA — There will be lots of business taking place on the floor of the Georgia World Congress Center here July 31-Aug. 2 during The Clean Show.

But the exhibits and educational sessions aren’t open 24 hours a day. There’s plenty in the city of Atlanta to experience and places to drink, dine and network for show attendees.

“Atlanta, while being a true ‘Southern city’ with all the things one would expect of the South, is also a metropolitan area that has so much to offer, for anyone from anywhere,” say representatives from Cintas in the area. “It is a melting pot of people, cultures and all that can provide for whatever one is looking for.”

“Atlanta has convenient worldwide accessibility due to the airport,” shares Charles Brown, UniFirst’s general manager in Atlanta. “The convention centers are in the entertainment district, and everything is within walking distance.”

The weather in July and August, while hot, should be fantastic, say the reps from Cintas.

“Not immune from springtime weather and storms, by late July the summer heat will be building, but it is bearable and makes for outstanding evening outdoor activities and dining,” they add.

“The Clean Show will return to ‘The A’ in 2022 for a remarkable edition, and we want you to enjoy your stay while you’re off the show floor,” shares organizer Messe Frankfurt.

Both Messe Frankfurt and the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau shared food and fun ideas for Clean ’22 attendees and exhibitors to experience the best the city has to offer.
