ATLANTA SOCIAL SEASON MAGAZINE is a publication that was started by Gloria Lane, a former news anchor at WSB-TV. It serves as a clearinghouse for more than 200 organizations, who coordinate the scheduling of major corporate events and charitable functions through the magazine.

The city's spending power is enormous, with an estimated 55% of all retail sales and services coming from Atlanta residents and 45% from visitors living 200 miles or more outside the metro area.

It is additionally used by major real estate companies and agents to promote their listings and direct newcomers to some of the city's best resources.
