2018 Autumn Classic - SEPTEMBER18 & 19 Register today - Tickets are going FAST!

Our Autumn Classic packages offer valuable discounts over individual pricing for these events!

We will still offer a variety of options, from all-inclusive to only the Braves game or our golf tournament. 

We've added 2 NEW EVENTS to our agenda for even more fun!  

Attendees may register by using our printable registration forms (below) or online here.  

NOTEWalk-in registrations for the Bravesgame will NOT be accepted due to the need of pre-purchasing tickets. 

Catch a game with your friends and peers at SunTrust Park on Tuesday, September 18!  Help us cheer and chop while the Atlanta Braves go head to head with the St. Louis Cardinals!  This is a 7:35 game and seats are in the Hank Aaron Terrace.  These seats feature indoor and outdoor seating, all-inclusive full ballpark fair menu  (with much more than just hot dogs and popcorn), includes non-alcoholic beverages, as well as access to a private bar and restrooms. Don’t worry about finding a park, we’ll meet at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and take professional shuttle transportation to the park and back to the hotel.

On Wednesday, September 19, our golfers will enjoy a first class tournament at the City Club Marietta. This challenging, mountain course offers the finest playing experience among rolling hills, towering pines and spectacular Southern vistas.  We will have great prizes for our golfers during our tournament award ceremony.

We have added 2 new activities this year! Join us Tuesday at the hotel to check-in, pick-up your Braves tickets, and enjoy Pre-Game Networking with your fellow attendees! Our shuttle will take you to directly to the heart of SunTrust Park. On Wednesday, while the golfers enjoy their day on the course, non-golfers can enjoy an afternoon of shopping and lunch! For planning purposes, please let us know if you are interested when you register for the Autumn Classic.

The Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel is the perfect place to relax and enjoy scenic views, and is steps away from the golf course! Your hotel accommodations will include breakfast,  complimentary Wi-Fi and parking. Located just 20 miles northwest of Atlanta, it is a great  location for those who may want to extend their stay and take advantage of all the activities Metro Atlanta has to offer!
