Was pleasantly pleased at what a nice job the city of Pigeon Forge did on their LeConte Convention Center. I just went to a show there and will say it is open and air with really nice restrooms and wonderful lounge areas. Parking was free for my event and there is a circle drive drop area should you need one for a loved one. It looks like the trolley service also drops off there.
They do not allow outside drinks so gulp down the ol' Starbucks before you enter. They do have coffee, hot foods, salads (?), sammys and snacks inside should you need them.
