If you’re an attendee, you’ve landed on the right page.

The Convention Center is located in the heart of downtown Knoxville, a vibrant city home to the University of Tennessee and the World’s Fair Park and gateway to the Smoky Mountains, the most-visited national park in the United States. The downtown and Old City areas feature restaurants, hotels, eclectic shopping, a movie cinema, bookstore, riverfront park and nighttime entertainment.

A free downtown trolley will take you around town, or you can reach your destination by walking. Dining options range from an old-fashioned Southern breakfast to traditional favorites and international and fusion flavors.

Each season brings new scenery from the orange colors of the leaves and Tennessee football in the fall, to the sparkling lights of Christmas in the City in the winter, to the beautiful blooms of the Dogwood Arts Festival in the spring, to the blue splash of water fountains in the summer.

No matter what time of year, Knoxville offers small town charm with big city fun and Southern hospitality.
