The facilities themselves are small compared to other larger city convention centers. With that said, the grounds are well maintained, parking not so bad, and security is good. We go herre every year for a Christmas festival and the Dinosaur show...which will be wrapping up next year cause my youngest doesn't want to go again...haha.

Maybe I just don't know where to park, but it is always a hike and you have to pay to park. That being said, the venue is perfect, and anything I have attended there has always been set up great.

Nice convention center in the middle of downtown. Easy access from the freeway. Handicap parking near entrance. Large enough for a decent size event. Some convention centers are so gigantic and difficult to get around, not this one. Nice & cool in the summer, clean restrooms. Visited for several different events and competitions.

This weekend was one of the best for Fanboy! I'm very glad they use the Knoxville Convention Center for this event. It's probably the only place around town that is large enough to accommodate such a large number of people! The only thing I would like to comment on is the air conditioning system on the convention floor. It was... More

I have been to several conventions here. The views are great if you want to take a break. Plus it is next to the World's Fair Park which has some nice walkways.

Very good facility, was pleased to have chairs versus bleachers to sit on. The landscaping & interior are very nice compared to a lot of venues we have been to. Location is good, though parking is difficult.

Former Chairman of the Board retirement party was first class and KCC was a great venue. Plenty of space, pleasant staff and great food (tasty and hot).

Mid sized convention center close to the world's fair park and major national chain hotels like the Holiday in (closest) Marriott and Crown Plaza. Pretty good and modern for this historic mid sized town.

This is your typical convention center in the middle of downtown Knoxville. I've been part of many activities here without incident including my high school graduation.
