The Knoxville Convention Center does not impress me. We recently attended the Knoxville Hall of Fame dinner, and they should be embarrassed about the food the was served. It was cold and bland tasting.

I've attended many functions in this convention center, both as an attendee and an exhibitor. There is not parking directly attached. While there is parking somewhat close, anything is a walk. And when it is really hot or really cold, both of which are common here, it is not that fun. It is located in a relatively safe part of... More

We have attended two fanboy events at this venue this year. Very nice place! Plenty of clean restrooms, temperature is always pleasant. The only thing inconvenient would be parking. It's not close by and often you are charged for it.

This space is great for conventions and very well laid out. I've been here for multiple events and never had any problems.

The Convention Center is a great place ~ good sized, kept cool but not frigid like some convention centers. The only suggestions I would have is to have more seating out in the hallways and lounging areas, as well as have some more food vendors. My mother needed to walk with a cane, and while there were some great rocking... More

A tiny fraction of the size of most other Convention Centers. It is one room! It takes about 15 minutes to walk through the "Home Show" here and that is with looking at everything twice!

Attended a Regional Robotics competition here last Friday and Saturday. They had set aside some designated parking for this that was sufficient on Friday but not Saturday. However, if you read ahead, the State lots, there is one across the street, are free on the weekends. It rained, so we did have to walk in the rain and the pedestrian... More

Went to the House and Garden show today. Parking is a joke. The signs turn you left away from the place and then just END. We used Primiere Parking - the machine to take your money was broken - would not take charge card either. SO the parking ended up costing 20,00. Then once inside you have no clue where... More
