Even before the 1996 Olympics put Atlanta on the world’s map, Global Atlanta Publisher Phil Bolton saw globalization taking place in his backyard.
That sparked a news innovation that remains unique to this day: covering international business from a local perspective.
Two decades later, we remain the only publication devoted to this important niche in Atlanta and Georgia.
Through personal, in-depth reporting published on our website and summarized in ourweekly email newsletter, Global Atlanta tracks how local companies are engaging with the global economy and how foreign enterprises are fueling Atlanta’s rise as an international business center.
Now published solely online, GlobalAtlanta.com knits together Atlanta’s disparate international communities, revealing its ties with the world while helping local readers navigate the nuances of the global economy.
Our international calendar is the most comprehensive source for the latest academic, business and cultural events around the city.
Readers can expect to a steady stream of articles on cross-border business, education, culture and trade with a focus on “actionable” content. We’ve always sought to inspire emails, phone calls, event attendance and personal connections. Our only bias is toward promoting Atlanta as a global business center.
