Cobb Galleria Centre, 2 Galleria Parkway SE in the Cumberland area, is celebrating 20 years of successful operations.

Opened in January 1994, it was the first convention facility in the country to combine exhibition and meeting space with a retail component and hotel in what was then considered a suburban location.  Since that time, Cobb Galleria Centre has garnered both regional and national recognition. As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, it unveiled a new logo, advertising campaign, website and visual identity, along with completing a series of interior renovations and upgrades.

“What better time than our 20th anniversary and the completion of major renovations to unveil a fresh look for our signature mark and our re-designed website,” said Michele Swann, general manager and CEO. “Our new contemporary logo features the venue’s signature pyramid and the redesigned website, aside from being incredibly aesthetically pleasing, is more agile, interactive and easier to navigate.”

The website, cobbgalleria.com, features reorganized and expanded content, an interactive floor plan, virtual tours, interactive maps, a dynamic events calendar, online ordering for facility services and connection to the venue’s social media channels.

Since opening, Cobb Galleria Centre has had an economic impact of $1.8 billion on Cobb County and $2.6 billion on the state of Georgia. Approximately 1,100 people are employed annually by the Centre and more than 9.7 million people have attended 20,000 events.

The Cobb Galleria Centre is in the landscaped 88-acre Galleria complex in the Cumberland area and has 320,000 square feet of event space, four exhibition halls, 20 meeting rooms, four executive boardrooms and a grand ballroom. The Cobb-Marietta Coliseum & Exhibit Hall Authority governs it, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and the Galleria Specialty Shops.
