Q&A With TK Peterson and Ryan Wilson

Three things you should know about The Gathering Spot.

We are in the community business more than anything else. The thing that makes The Gathering Spot special is the membership community that calls the club home. We bring that community together through dining, experiences, and work but the core focus of the business is driving connectivity between our membership. 

Our community is very diverse. Our youngest member is 23 and our oldest 88. The membership community is also a true reflection of our city. Nearly every industry is represented and we take great care to make sure that over half of the membership community are open for women. We believe that our club represents the future of what communities will look like.

TGS provides a turn-key events service and specializes in hosting corporate and brand experiences. Our team has executed 5,000+ events and we are well suited to support our clients on any aspect of executing an experience including helping to introduce them to their target audience.

How has being located in Atlanta contributed to your company’s success?

There is no other city like Atlanta. Our greatest export here is our culture. This is the place to be if you want your ideas to capture the world's attention. From the Civil Rights movement, to Coca-Cola, to your favorite major film or hit song- we're a global city that has always known how to share the magic that is created here with the rest of the world. We moved back here when we were 24 years old and quickly have been able to establish ourselves here. We've drawn off the energy of this city and have been able to weave our business into existing strengths and diversity of industry.

What does being part of the Backed by ATL community mean for your company?

This is a tremendous honor for us. One of our co-founders (Ryan) is from Atlanta and so the opportunity to be "backed' by the city is extremely humbling. This also means that we have the opportunity to boldly continue to spread the word about what is so special about our community at TGS. We hope to help other organizations that we work with have the opportunity to similarly grow and scale their organizations. Finally, we are also really excited to be able to spend time with the other members of our cohort and have the opportunity to share best practices as we all grow.
