East Point has around 2,700 hotel rooms and is less than two miles from the Georgia International Convention Center and eight miles from Georgia World Congress Center.

The aim of the partnership is to drive awareness of East Point and its accommodation offer.

ACVB president William Pate said: "This is a win-win for everyone. Through this partnership, East Point will see a significant increase in its number of visitors, even as we bring more convention and tourism business to Atlanta."
 
East Point is also located adjacent to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
 
East Point has enlisted the ACVB as its destination management organisation after raising its hotel tax rate from 3% to 8% under a change in the State Code of Georgia hotel tax legislation passed in 2008.  

ACVB will receive 43.75% of East Point’s hotel tax, amounting to around $1.4m a year.
