The center is located in an area with multiple hotels. We attended the TN State Square & Round Dance Convention and was impressed with the center! Lots of different rooms (sizes vary) that made separating the different forms and levels of dancing. The center was very clean.

Every July and in the fall, there is the Craftmen's Show at the Convention Center. All items are original to the artist and are hand made. Several of the artists normally work in the Arts and Crafts community in Gatlinburg. Although we bought mainly jewelry and home décor items, we also bought some Christmas gifts. We admired the creations of... More

We attended the Craftsmens Fair during October and were amazed by the varied crafts and the numbers of craftsmen in attendance. It was absolutely magical.

While visiting the crafts show in Gatlinburg I had occasion to visit the restrooms. It is best described as last painted 20 years ago and last cleaned 15 years ago. Other facilities in town have as much or more traffic and most are very clean. Stay out !

This is the place to send my brides who want nothing but the best. Debbie supervises an amazing crew very well. When she is behind the scene, your event will run perfectly.

Come here every year for the Tennessee FFA Convention, it's a great meeting space! It's big enough, has enough rooms for our activities, is always clean and comfortable as far as temperature.

The convention center was within walking distance to the Holiday Inn and downtown. The craft show going on was very entertaining.

The facility was nice, and while I appreciated the staff tending to the bathrooms about every hour, there was only one on the floor of our event....it was crowded and often closed for cleaning. Very inconvenient. 2nd entrance and exit to our events were blocked off so the only entrance and exit (escalator) was packed at all times. Entrance/exit from... More

During our Thanksgiving visits we walk through the Craftsman Fair at the Convention Center. The Convention center is spacious and the show looks very small in it. The local Craftsmen from making leather belts to candles to photos and paintings are here. Each person is willing to spend some time telling you about their craft. I wish the show was... More
