COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 18, 2007) – USA Volleyball announced today that the 2008 USA Open Volleyball Championships will be held May 24-31, 2008, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga. The Marriott Marquis will serve as the headquarter hotel for the USA Volleyball Annual Meetings.


“The City of Atlanta has stepped up as a great partner of USA Volleyball in staging major volleyball events in the last four years,” USA Volleyball Managing Director of Events Michael Chandler said. “We look forward to having the USA Open Volleyball Championships return to Atlanta in 2008.”

For 78 years, USA Volleyball has showcased its USA Open Volleyball Championships in 28 different states and 54 various cities. There are only 18 cities that have hosted the event on multiple occasions, Atlanta being one of them. The 2008 Open marks the second time the event has taken place at the Georgia World Congress Center, with the event previously being hosted there in 2004.

USA Volleyball has embarked upon the Gate City of the South on three other occasions: 2003 and 2006 USA Junior Olympic Girls’ Volleyball Championship and the 2007 USA Junior Olympic Boys’ Volleyball Championship.

The USA Open Volleyball Championships is one of the largest national championships in any sport in the United States, featuring the sport of volleyball from coast-to-coast. Each year the Open brings together players with a passion for volleyball on all skill levels including: men’s and women’s Open Divisions (Open, AA, A, BB and B) and men’s and women’s age division flights. A bridge is also gapped from junior-level to collegiate players. It serves different meanings and purposes among all competitors.

The Georgia World Congress Center is located in the heart of Atlanta’s downtown entertainment district featuring extraordinary shopping, delectable dinning and world-class entertainment. Top local attractions include the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center, Georgia Dome, Philips Arena, Turner Field and World of Coca-Cola.

“The participants in Atlanta will enjoy the close proximity of hotels to the playing venue,” Chandler said. “When competitors are not in action, there is plenty of great entertainment and things to do nearby.”
