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.

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
