It’s gotten to be a thing… What hat is A.J. Robinson, president of Central Atlanta Progress, going to wear at the organization’s annual meeting. At CAP’s meeting on March 14, Robinson wore a model of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta – complete with the blue Polaris lounge on top. They made the hat to commemorate the Hyatt’s 50th anniversary, which will be celebrated in early May. The Hyatt Regency, designed by Atlanta architect John Portman, revolutionized hotel design in the United States by having a dramatic indoor atrium. Before joining CAP in 2003, Robinson was an executive with the Portman organization. By the way, CAP’s 2017 annual meeting was held at the Hyatt Regency (Photo by Maria Saporta)
