Atlanta Adventures: Discover the City Beyond MODEX 2024

MODEX 2024 is happening in Atlanta, GA, and while the expo floor buzzes with the latest technology and innovations in supply chain and logistics, be sure to step outside the conference for some well-deserved fun! So, trade your work shoes for comfy sneakers (if you’re not already using them!) because we’re about to experience the vibrant culture of the heart of Georgia’s capital city. Here are some activities to add to your itinerary:
  1. Take a Stroll Through Centennial Olympic Park: If your feet aren’t tired from walking the show floor, indulge in a leisurely walk around Atlanta’s Olympic legacy. Take in the sights, relax by the Fountain of Rings, and soak in the atmosphere of this iconic park. Whether you’re admiring the sculptures or simply enjoying the greenery, Centennial Olympic Park offers a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Atlanta.
  2. Visit the Georgia Aquarium: Splash into a world of wonder at the Georgia Aquarium, the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration at MODEX. Marvel at mesmerizing marine life, from sea turtles to majestic whale sharks. While Charlotte the self-fertilizing stingray might not call this home, captivating exhibits ensure an unforgettable journey beneath the waves.
  3. Learn About the World of Coca-Cola: If you haven’t yet quenched your thirst for knowledge with MODEX’s 200+ on-floor seminars, head over to the World of Coca-Cola. Immerse yourself in the history and heritage of this beloved beverage as you learn about its evolution over the years. Sample different Coke products from around the world and uncover the secrets of the famous vault where the secret formula is stored.
  4. Indulge in Southern Cuisine: After a day of forming new connections during several MODEX networking events and opportunities, why not treat yourself and your newfound colleagues to a delicious Southern meal? Downtown Atlanta boasts an array of restaurants serving up classic Southern dishes that will tantalize your taste buds.

  5. Explore Atlanta’s Vibrant Neighborhoods- Little Five Points, Virginia-Highland, and Ponce City Market: MODEX’s Backyard and Front Porch areas are brimming with food options and activities to enrich your experience. However, it’s also worth exploring these eclectic neighborhoods, just a short 20-minute drive away (which is nothing with Atlanta traffic), for unique shopping and cultural adventure. Little Five Points exudes a bohemian vibe with its quirky shops, dive bars, and eateries, while Virginia-Highland charms with boutique stores, green spaces like Orme Park that runs along Clear Creek, and cozy cafes. Ponce City Market, a historic building transformed into a modern marketplace, boasts a diverse mix of retail shops, food stalls, and entertainment options, making it a vibrant destination for shopping, dining and unwinding after a full day of visiting exhibitors.
