My wife attended the "Gatlinburg Gathering", a southern gospel music event last week We also attended an arts and crafts show at the same location a few years ago. The facility is very well maintained and in a very good location. The staff is quite helpful.

This is a convention center, but it has two life-size, real-looking bears in the lobby where tourists can come. One is on all-fours and the other is standing up. These make great selfie photo opportunities.

This was our first time in Gatlinburg, and first time in the Convention Center. It's centrally located, plenty of parking available, and very capably able to handle a conference. Break out rooms were easily attainable, seating, lighting, clean, large restrooms, and a helpful staff made it an excellent experience.

We bought a beautiful hand made wooden bowl, a hand made musical instrument called a psaltery, and some organic soup mixes. The vendors were a pleasure to deal with. There was even country western entertainers who... More

We book our convention here every year. Missy is their best assett and they should give her a raise! She is the event manager and always goes above and beyond to make things run smoothly. I cannot say enough about her level of excellence. She makes things less stressful and is so proffessional.
