This convention center is unlike most in that it has a beautiful permenant art collection valued at over one million dollars. There is also artwork on loan from the Knoxville Museum of Art which is conveniently located one block from the center and is also free to attendees. It is awesome to see a city support the arts and expose... More

We visited the home show. There was plenty of room and they had the vendors arranged in a great lay out. The place is very large and clean. They had the place very well lit and kept it at a comfortable temp. for everyone. I would definitely attend an other event here.

Knoxville has a great convention center. The Home and garden show was a little less than I remember it being several years back. $10 is a big fee for the event. Fortunately it benefits the Dogwood Arts Festival which is a wonderful good all around enjoyable event.

Attended a cheerleading competition held by Cheersport at the Convention Center. Very nice but they only had Pepsi products... Need a better variety at their concession locations.

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.
