THE SUPER SHOW MUST GO ON IN ATLANTA
Published October 27, 1998
The Super Show had intended to move out of the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) in Atlanta to the 2.4 million- square-foot World Expo Center in Osceola County, FL, but developers of the FL site "openly admit" that the facility "will not open by early 2001," according to Maria Saporta of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. GWCC Exec Dir Dave Graveline: "It's obvious that the Osceola center is not progressing anywhere close to the original schedule." SGMA President John Riddle said that the Super Show is "back to the drawing board," and Atlanta, New Orleans or Orlando "could accommodate the convention" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/27).
