With the demise of the long-running CHA Summer show in Chicago (which was transplanted to Las Vegas last year for its last iteration), the CHA PaperArts section needed a new show to promote and sell its critical third and fourth quarter holiday releases. Thus, the CHA PaperArts show was born!
The new show was a completely re-imagined experience from the former summer show. The CHA PaperArts show was designed as a hotel-based show, with all events taking place under the roof of the Hilton Atlanta. The high-rise hotel sits in the heart of downtown Atlanta, in the neighborhood surrounding Olympic Park. From my room on the 13th floor, the view spread expansively across I-75, which was only a block away, to the Emory University building and other downtown highrises.
