The Georgia Technology Authority anticipated about 500 people would RSVP for the Georgia Cyber Center grand opening Tuesday.

Turns out its estimate was a little low.

“We’re at the 1,200 mark for RSVPs, and that doesn’t count the 200 or so people who will show up without an RSVP,” GTA Director Calvin Rhodes said last week. “We’re just excited to see this interest level and that folks will want to spend their evening with us.”

The 8 p.m. reception and ribbon-cutting for the center’s Hull McKnight Building might get a tad crowded in spots, but there will be plenty of room in the 167,000-square-foot building for those who want to explore the state-of-the-art center designed to put Georgia at the forefront of cybersecurity education and training.
