ATLANTA (AP) _ The Georgia Dome will remain just the Georgia Dome _ at least for the time being.

The Georgia World Congress Center, which operates the stadium, has decided not to seek a corporate naming-rights deal.

Since the state-owned Dome opened a decade ago, it has become common for such venues to acquire a corporate moniker, such as the one at the nearby Philips Arena.

Dome officials at one time speculated naming rights could be worth up to $10 million a year.

A Georgia World Congress Center consultant, Cleveland's International Management Group, ``said we should not seek a title-naming sponsor because of a softening in the economy,'' Dome general manager Khalil Johnson said.

Georgia Dome sponsorships, which include signs inside, run out in 2002. Johnson said the Dome will pursue similar deals.
