Debbie Orsburn is the best

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

Just a few booths set up in a hallway with site rooms off of the hallway. It was free, but very small. Better to visit the artists on the mountain and see the crafts there.

A nice facility, but the craft show, though free, was very small. Much better to go into the mountains and shop in the Arts Community there. Many stores and galleries filled with handmade goodies.

Easy walk from the Ober Gatlinburg Tram Center. Spacious - bought some items from a few of the booths, later searched the Arts and Crafts community for one of our favorite artists and bought more. Now are ordering online from another vender from whom we bought various soup & cheese ball mixes. Was worth the visit.
