The Knoxville Convention Center is prepared to meet your every need. We take pride in making sure the time you spend with us is smoothly executed, enjoyable and memorable for you, your clients, and attendees.

In our beautiful facility, we have exhibition halls, a Grand Ballroom, natural lit spacious concourses, a fully equipped Lecture Hall, conference rooms and meeting rooms to meet the size and scope of any event – from a small reception to a national convention hosting thousands. Regardless of the size of your group, we want a smooth and seamless operation before, during and after your event. And we are here to service you in the true “Volunteer” spirit of East Tennessee.
