FinTech South selected the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to host its event. The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is a world-class sports and entertainment facility with a reimagined fan experience. FinTech South will take over the entire stadium for the event. All aspects of the event will take place on the playing field level of the stadium.

The general session, with keynotes, awards, pitch contest and lunch, will take place on half of the playing field from the 50-yard line to the end zone with views of the 360-degree HD Video Halo Board measuring 58ft tall and 101ft high mega column. Innovation Alley will be located on the second half of the playing field featuring 60+ startups, international companies, premium sponsors, and exhibit space.

Adjacent to the playing field are the executive clubs hosting the 24 breakout sessions with four tracks of cutting-edge content in various formats from speaker spotlights, fireside chats, and panel discussions. Between the clubs are lounges for breaks and having 1x1 meetings. The Falcons Locker Room will be invite-only VIP sessions for C-level executives.
