This facility is very nice. It does require quite a bit of walking to go from one area to another. Cushioned folding chairs were brought in for the event we attended. Floor is level, but stages are elevated. Stairs are necessary if entering from the Parkway, but there is a handicap ramp if entering from the Historic Nature Trail.

We have attended events at the Convention Center several times. The most recent being The annual Gatlinburg Gathering. It is a very nice venue for this type of event and others. It has an entrance on Historic Trail which makes it very convenient as far as parking. There is an escalator to get to the main floor of events. I... More

When you pass this place, particularly on the Parkway side, you'd hardly know it was a convention center if not for the signage. When you go inside, you're pleasantly surprised as well. Many convention centers I've visited over the years are dark, dingy places with lots of concrete. That's not the case here. This convention center is well decorated and... More

The location is awesome for motel rooms available in area, restaurants and shopping, too. The center was very clean and well maintained. The restrooms were well stocked and clean. We were there for a long weekend of square dancing. The temperature was comfortable on Thursday, but too hot on Friday and Saturday. I know there were nearly 1000 dancers there,... More

We attended a tournament and seminars there. All went well the staff of the event as well as the convention center were efficient and cordial. This years banquet was exceptional. Food choices all great as well as deserts. Would be perfect for any large occasion. While we were there the craft fair was on tge other end and we never... More

The summer Craftsman's Fair kicked off today in Gatlinburg. The Gatlinburg Convention Center is a great place for it because of it's location in downtown Gatlinburg and because of the size of the event. Artist from all over come to sell their arts and crafts at this show. There is something you will find that suits you, no doubt. Clean... More

Great shopping! We enjoyed going every few months to see what fantastic fines we can get! Bring a couple bags to store the stuff you buy and give yourself plenty of time to walk around!

A great location and convenient to walk to from surrounding hotels. The air conditioning was way too cold. I wore jeans, a T-shirt and a hoodie to a concert in the spring and I was still cold. Felt like my seat was in a refrigeration unit, I ended up catching a cold and so did my wife. While I understand... More

Enjoyed the Gaither Family Fest, this was a nice venue. It was just so cold, wasn't prepared for the first concert on Friday night and it was uncomfortable if you were wearing short sleeves and sandles. Wore fleece the rest of the weekend and stayed warm.

The convention center is a wonderful place for all kinds of activities, and events. Right across the street from the Royal Townhouse Motel, it is easy to get to.
