Special Events & Protocol assists members of the Georgia Tech community by providing correct protocol for hosting or inviting high-level, international, or senior government guests, as well as supplying campus standards and guidelines used at all Institute events.
As event planners, attention to detail and clean execution are paramount when creating a lasting impression or evoking a particular response from our guests. Special Events & Protocol is currently collaborating with fellow campus partners to produce guidelines relating to stage set-up, agenda creation, nametag printing, and much more. We look forward to announcing these new resources and templates in Fall 2012. In the interim, please consult our protocol resources for ideas, as well as the resources outlined on this page.
As Georgia Tech continues to expand our global footprint and influence, it is essential that we have an understanding of our diverse visitors’ needs and cultures, and serve as welcoming hosts and ambassadors of Georgia Tech throughout all our interactions. Each visitor and situation is unique, requiring its own set of guidelines, tips, and expectations. Contact us in the initial stages of your planning to discuss your particular needs and receive guidelines on cultural norms, appropriate gifts, flag placement, introductions, and other related issues. For additional assistance, please visit our protocol resources.
Note that the Office of the Vice Provost for International Initiatives is the coordinating point for many international initiatives regarding research, education, and economic development.
