This event will focus on the in-room trading that we've all enjoyed, but seemed to always run out of time to do more! Over 5 floors of blocked rooms at the Hilton Atlanta Airport, will help to ensure that everyone gets a chance to buy/sell/trade to their heart's content. Book your reservations today before all of these rooms are gone, and at $70/night, it's a real HOT deal!
