World Nuclear Association Symposium

Welcome to Atlanta!

On behalf of the employees of UxC, we would like to welcome you to our home city of Atlanta, Georgia during your stay for the NEI International Uranium Fuel Seminar. Atlanta, also known as the “Capital of the South”, is home to one of the country’s foremost thriving business centers with a varied and eclectic mix of residents, cultures, businesses, and attractions. Atlanta is a world-class, international destination considered an “alpha city” boasting a robust and growing economy and a metro-area population of over 5.5 million people. Yet, Atlanta is also incredibly livable and its residents pride themselves for their southern hospitality.

In a city as large and diverse as Atlanta, there is certainly no shortage of experiences to enjoy. As such, we have compiled a list to aid you in determining the best restaurants and attractions our city has to offer. And, on behalf of UxC on our 20th anniversary, we welcome you to Atlanta and hope you enjoy your stay.
