Construction of a long awaited headquarters hotel at Gwinnett’s convention center moved ahead in late April. Commissioners authorized Chairman Nash to execute a lease agreement with the Development Authority and other documents to facilitate the construction on the grounds of the Gwinnett Center
in Duluth.

According to GCVB CEO Preston Williams, the project represents a $70 million investment with no public dollars involved, saying, “Plans call for a full-service, first-class Marriott hotel of up to 12 stories.”

Chairman Nash adds, “The addition of an on-site headquarters hotel will help attract conventions, trade shows, meetings, performers and audiences to spend their money in Gwinnett County.”
