How to Save Money on Your Atlanta Market Trip
Choosing to attend Market is an investment in your business. We have tools and resources to help you make the most of your time, but we acknowledge that cost can be a factor when deciding whether or not to attend. So we pulled together some tips for a more budget-friendly experience.
Save on Parking
Atlanta Market provides multiple options for free or discounted parking during Market. Click here for information including lots and rates. On weekdays during Market you can also park for free at our sister property, ADAC, and take the free shuttle to and from campus.
Save on Transportation
- Take advantage of free shuttle service between the AmericasMart campus and most official hotels outside walking distance. We also offer complimentary shuttle service between AmericasMart and the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) and a complimentary airport shuttle for departures. Click here for routes and additional information.
- MARTA, Atlanta’s rapid rail system, takes you straight from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport terminal to Peachtree Center Station/AmericasMart Atlanta and to many hotels and attractions throughout the city, including Downtown, Midtown, Buckhead and Dunwoody. It’s a safe, stress-free option for getting downtown.
Save on Lodging
- We’ve negotiated the best rates at key hotels in Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. Book with our official travel partner, OnPeak to secure your stay. Get started here.
- Consider renting a place through Airbnb or VRBO for your stay. You likely won’t have to pay for overnight parking and you can stock up on groceries for meals instead of dining out.
Save on Food
- Pick up a copy of the Event Guide at Registration when you arrive on campus for a list of free amenities (think coffee, snacks, cocktails & desserts) at Market. Many showrooms also offer complimentary food and beverages so don’t hesitate to ask.
- If your lodging includes a refrigerator (or a full kitchen!), stock up on snacks and meals at the grocery store. You’ll find healthier options and save money.
