The Cobb Galleria Centre is a meeting and convention center and a shopping center in the Cumberland/Galleria district of Cobb County, in
northwest Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States. It is also located next to a cluster of mid-rise office buildings, the Cumberland Mall and the Cobb
Energy Performing Arts Centre. It has hosted over 15,000 events and millions of guests. The venue operates under the authority of the
Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority and is located at the intersection of three major highways: Interstate 75, Interstate 285, and
Cobb Parkway (U.S. 41) just northwest of the city. The Galleria Specialty Mall, which pre-dates the convention center, is located downstairs, with
meeting halls upstairs.
History

Cobb Galleria Centre was constructed in 1994 by the Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority to serve the need for a facility to
accommodate small and mid-sized tradeshows, conventions, meetings and social events. With more than 320,000 total square feet, the facility
features 144,000 square feet (13,400 m2) of exhibit space, a 25,000-square-foot (2,300 m2) ballroom, 20 meeting rooms and four executive
boardrooms.

Located within the Galleria complex, an 88 acres (36 ha) office/retail/hotel area, the Centre is connected to the Galleria Specialty Mall and the
520-room Renaissance Waverly Hotel. Accessible by a pedestrian sky bridge are the Sheraton Suites Galleria Hotel and Cumberland Mall.

The Authority has been able to re-invest in its asset through several acquisitions and construction initiatives, including building additional exhibit
space and complimentary parking facilities, bringing food and beverage operations in-house and acquiring the Galleria Specialty Shops. The
biggest initiative has been the construction of the state-of-the-art Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, which opened in 2007.
