Exhibitor Information

Southern Hospitality. All Day. Every Day.

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

The Knoxville Convention Center, located between the urban area of downtown Knoxville and the campus of the University of Tennessee, offers a beautiful facility to showcase products and a vibrant area to explore. Downtown Knoxville has an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops, and theaters with a thriving residential population. It is located in the middle of a large metropolitan area with three major interstate systems, so events are well attended. We border the beautiful World’s Fair Park and feature three floors of concourse, meeting, and exhibit space.

We are here to serve you in the true “Volunteer” spirit of East Tennessee.

Facility Amenities

At the core of our Convention Center is a single expanse with nearly 120,000 gross square feet of contiguous and divisible exhibit space on one level. This area has separate entrances so it allows for easy movement of attendees. There are utility floor ports located on 30-foot centers that provide electricity, drainage, data and phone connections. Compressed air and water are also located on specific columns.

The meeting rooms can be set up in theater or elevated theater seating, classroom or banquet or a combination of these sets. The second and third floors offers ballrooms and meeting rooms with spacious concourses that are a perfect setting for exhibits and displays.

Move In & Move Out

The Knoxville Convention Center has an underground loading dock with nine truck bays. Seven of the bays have dock levelers for easy offloading. Ramps allow for direct access to the exhibit floor, and tractor-trailers up to 74 feet in length can be turned around within the dock. The entrance gate to the secured loading dock area via Cumberland Avenue is 15.5 feet tall and 37 feet, 10 inches in width.
