Commemorating and Advocating at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport

Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the world's busiest passenger airport and the country’s liveliest airport for arrivals and departures of domestic and international flights.

Its concourses are filled with panels that reflect the culture of the city. Celebrities, professional athletes, historical figures, and legendary monuments of Atlanta greet each traveler with a taste of southern hospitality.

The airport prides itself on providing safe traveling options for millions of people that come and go on a daily basis. A major component to Hartsfield’s traveling efficiency is the hospitality offered throughout the airport.

From the service of ticket and gate agents, to the communication of safety procedures from TSA agents at security checkpoints, to the food courts and vendors in each concourse, hospitality is a focal point at Hartsfield-Jackson. Occasionally, the Airport will even host events for the holiday seasons, or events for a cause.

MLK 50 Forward: A Commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On April 5th 2018, Hartsfield-Jackson Airport hosted an event that honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This memorable occasion was centered around the theme, "MLK50 Forward", an initiative originated by the famous monument in Atlanta, The King Center.

The Domestic Terminal Atrium featured poignant remarks and moving performances to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic leader’s assassination.

With the help of an AmpliVox 3250 Multimedia Podium, the audience was inspired as an orator recited the words of Dr. King’s last speech "MoutainTop".

Being that the Airport’s culture is one of excellence in the hospitality industry, AmpliVox is honored to have been relied upon to provide a professional image, during such a historic event.

Made in the USA, the Pinnacle Lectern features a 16 channel wireless sound system with a 150 watt amplifier that is powerful enough to reach audiences up to 2000 people in rooms up to 20,000 sq. ft. with crystal clear sound.

The Arc: For People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

One week later, the AmpliVox podium was utilized again for an event designated for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Launched in March 2016, the nation’s leading advocate for people with intellectual disabilities — The Arc — created a program to help families who experience difficulties when air-traveling.

While traveling by plane may be routine for most, the air travel experience can be particularly challenging for children & adults with autism.

Those with Autism spectrum disorders experience hypersensitivity to smell, sound, light and other behavior difficulties in the airport while traveling.

The Wings for Autism program was established in conjunction with Hartsfield-Jackson’s hospitality initiative.

Atlanta’s airport partnered with Delta Airlines, TSA, The Arc of Georgia, and The Arc of the Midland to host the second annual "Wings for Autism" Event.

On April 12th, this unique event began as two Delta Airline pilots addressed dozens of local individuals before boarding a Delta commercial aircraft, with the help of an AmpliVox 3250 Multimedia podium.

While aboard the aircraft, these passengers are given an in-flight experience, while also being informed of how to handle autistic spectrum disorders when traveling.

Whether Hartsfield-Jackson Airport is emphasizing the legacy of historical figures, or supporting distinguished causes for organizations that have a voice, hospitality and customer care are factors that separates Atlanta’s Airport from others across the country.

AmpliVox continues to provide solutions in the hospitality industry, offering quality presentations options and creating a professional appearances to help your organization be heard.
