For five days each year, the Atlanta International Auto Show takes over the C Hall of the Georgia World Congress
      Center, presenting the latest and greatest vehicles from the major automotive manufacturers. There’s lots to see, and
      with over 500,000 square feet of exhibit space, visitors can sometimes become a bit overwhelmed, unless they come
      prepared. Whether you’re in the market for a new vehicle, or you’re just out with the family taking in the sights, we
      want your visit to the event to be a great experience. To help you achieve that, here’s some tips for navigating your
      way through the Atlanta International Auto Show.
