The location will move to the Hilton Atlanta Airport. And, according to the site official site:

WHOlanta is relocating to a new home in 2018! We’re very excited about all the opportunities that the Hilton Atlanta Airport offers us.

  • We have access to a huge amount of function space, so we have plenty of room to continue growing
  • The hotel is undergoing a huge renovation of the function space, and while it’s nice now, it’s going to be amazing when we get there!
  • There are four excellent food options right inside the hotel
  • There are additional food options very close by, either in walking or very short driving distance
  • It’s very visible from the nearby area, making it incredibly easy to find

 

Very easy access from MARTA and from Airport, with free shuttles running in 20-minute intervals.
