Blade show questions...

Jan 18, 1999
I think that this year's blade show will have to be at the top of my list for a summer vacation, pending the wife's approval, that is (heh heh). I've heard from several people that there is a shuttle service from the airport to the show directly, is that true? That will take care of my need for a rental vehicle, but what about lodging? Is there going to be anything available if I start now, and where is a good place to stay that is close to the show or airport? I've never been to Atlanta or the Blade Show, so this is a new avenue for me. If anybody has some helpful suggestions about the Blade Show/and lodging (besides bringing my life savings with me for toys), please contact me, as I'd really appreciate it! Also, I have the show dates as June 11, 12, and 13.

Hope this helps, the show is open to the public on Fri. 11th 2:00 to 7:00, Sat. 12th 9:00 to 6:00, Sun. 13th 9:00 to 4:00.
Hotels in the area: Renaissance Waverly Hotel, Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites, Marriott Courtyard, Hampton Inn, Sheraton, Howard Johnson, Residence Inn, French Quarter Inn, I don't have any phone numbers though.

YES,it is sharp, just keep your fingers out of the way!

I understand that Rennie Raines is putting together a discount hotel package for the blade show. Anyone know how to get in touch

with him?

Try Rennie at, or his site at I believe he's doing up a package deal for rates at a local Holiday Inn.
