SUPER SHOW SET TO BID ADIEU TO ATLANTA AFTER 2000 EVENT
Published November 12, 1998
While the SGMA Super Show will be held in Atlanta in '99 and 2000, it "will likely" move to Orlando in 2001 and 2002, according to Maria Saporta of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Dan Graveline, Exec Dir of the GA World Congress Center, called the loss "devastating." The show brings 100,000 delegates to the city and has an economic impact of $70M. The show has been in Atlanta since its inception in '86, but has "outgrown space" in both the World Congress Center and the GA Dome (ATL. CONSTITUTION, 11/12).
