Book a room at the Moxy at our conference rate

We're excited to announce the Moxy as the hotel partner for GigCityElixir. This great new boutique hotel offers an unforgettable experience, from the check in experience with a signature cocktail to one of the most unique meeting areas in the city. In the midst of the exciting Southside, the hotel is a few minutes walk from the conference venue (or a quick shuttle ride), and also right on top of the landmark Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel. It also is a few minutes walk from the finest restaurants in the city, live music, and more.

Our conference is the same weekend as the IRONMAN Chattanooga, so don't delay and get your rooms booked!
