Table Information
Volunteers will be available to direct guests to their seats; however, registration/check-in is not required. Guests may go directly to their table. 

Security Check-In
To ensure the safety of all guests, everyone will be asked to participate in a security screening as they enter the Oceans Ballroom entrance, per the Georgia Aquarium. There will be magnetometers, a bag check, and wanding. No guns, knives, matches, or lighters are allowed inside the Aquarium. We encourage everyone to arrive early to make time for these checks and to bring as few items as possible with you. 
Self-parking is available in the Aquarium parking deck located at 246 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. The Oceans Ballroom is located on the first level of the parking deck. 
There will be four payment stations available inside the lobby of the Oceans Ballroom for those who choose to pay onsite. The cost is $12 per car. Three stations will accept credit cards; one station will be cash only.  

Parking purchased prior to the day of the event will be $10 per car. Guests are encouraged to purchase parking in advance in order to streamline the process. 


Alternative Transportation
We expect nearly 1,000 people - so we encourage you to use Uber/Lyft in order to expedite your exit after the event. The pick up/drop off location is 246 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. The Aquarium can also be accessed via MARTA.
