One of the goals that we have for Proto ATL is to provide a relaxing, casual environment in which to get work done. Because of this, we are hesitant to create scheduled times for attending designers to display their games at any of the tables. The tried-and-true method that we employ is from the “Protospiel” model of reciprocity. For example, if a designer demos their game to 3 players for one hour, that designer should play 3 hours of other peoples’ games.

If you crave a bit more structure, you can have it! In the months leading up to the event, we'll be posting "publisher profiles" with information about the attending publishers. Designers will be able to contact publishers prior to the event, and potentially schedule time to pitch their games.

Proto ATL is held in the heart of Atlanta, GA. If you are flying in, you can take Atlanta's train system (MARTA) from the airport. It is super affordable at only $2.50 each ride. Take a northbound Red Line train to the Buckhead Station and you'll have a 7 minute walk to the hotel. If walking, please mind traffic and be careful. Buckhead is a very busy area of Atlanta!

If you're not up for the walk, we'd suggest taking some sort of rideshare (Uber or Lyft) or arranging with other attendees for rides.

If you're driving to the event, we've negotiated some EXTREME parking discounts! Valet parking for hotel guests is available for only $10/day (normally $40/day)!
If you aren't a guest at the hotel, there is a parking garage right across the street.
