I attended a work function here recently, and a couple of years ago was in charge of an event here for over 800 people. It is an absolutely huge place which hosts the annual Fantasy of Trees, political events, business conventions, and expos. They do a pretty good job keeping it clean, and there are options for decorating which make... More

As a resident of Knoxville, I hear of all sorts of things being hosted at the Convention Center- from car shows to reunions to business seminars to Christmas festivities. The place is SUPER huge and spacious. The events that I've attended here are the 2014 Wine on the Water (it was pouring outside and had to be relocated) and my... More

I have attended a few events in this building. Charity, graduation, and cocker spaniel dog show. All have been well managed and enjoyable.

Attended the annual Christmas tree exhibition and sale held here yearly. My only complaint would be that special contributors are allowed a private showing and sale the night before the general public are allowed in. The decorations are always beautiful and the decorations are one of a kind.

Excellent facility near downtown, easily transformed for whatever event that is hosting here. It is large enough that it never feels too crowded. Parking is nearby, sometimes a little bit of a walk. On one side, the traffic can get quite busy. We've attended home improvement shows and found it easy in, easy out. Entrance fee will depend on the... More

Went to the "Car Show" here and the only thing worse than the Convention Center was the worthless event they call a "Car Show". This is not the actual Car show that tours the country but a pathetic sales event put on by a small handful of Knoxville car dealers. Don't bother wasting your time at this non event. As... More

This is a state of the art venue. I have attended a number of events here. Fund raising dinners, awards banquets, business meetings and my grandson's Gymnastics meets. The only negative in my book is the lack of parking. You can park nearby at the hotel next door or any of the numerous other paid lots which are within walking... More
