This year, the open hospitality receptions will be held at the beautiful Georgia Aquarium. Your badge is your ticket to enter the aquarium, so be sure to wear it. In addition to meeting our hosts and networking with old and new colleagues, you can visit all of the fascinating exhibits which will be specially open for our conference attendees.

The Georgia Aquarium is a short 4 block (approximately one-half mile) walk from the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. From the main entrance of the Hyatt turn right on Peachtree Street and continue one block to Baker Street. Turn left on Baker Street and continue 4 blocks (past Spring Street, Williams Street, and Olympic Park Drive). After Olympic Park Drive you will pass the World of Coca-Cola on your right and Centennial Olympic park on your left. Ahead on the right is the Georgia Aquarium, a large building resembling Noah’s ark.

Since the reception is only from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, we suggest you arrive by 6:30 PM to make the most of your two hours. You will need your CHI 2010 name badge for admission. Also, as a friendly reminder, as with any city, it is best to take your name badge off or wear it under other clothing while walking around town, and remember that large groups are not only more fun, but safer. If you prefer to take a cab, there should be several outside the Hyatt 24 hours a day. The fare is $8.00 for the first person and $2.00 for each additional person.
