The 1982 World’s Fair Park is the setting for the Knoxville Convention Center. An easy walk to the University of Tennessee, Market Square, Knoxville’s Olde City, Tennessee Riverfront Park and Neyland Stadium for Volunteer Football.
This 500,000 square foot facility serves as host to numerous local, state and national events. The center offers fourteen meeting rooms, three luxury conference rooms, a lecture hall seating 450 people, a ballroom seating 1,650 for a banquet, and a 120,000 square foot exhibition hall.
Just off Interstates 40/75/81, the center offers unparalleled access by automobile to more than half of the population of the United States. Three border-to-border or coast-to-coast interstates are unusual in any location in the country.
Wildlife everywhere…. Bears, Deer, Eagles and Hawks roam the expansive fields. Bikers peddle the winding trails and roads. This quiet historical cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. was populated until 1936. And, you can still stop and enjoy visiting the many existing homes of the past.
Each fall a rainbow of colors surrounds the Knoxville Area… The Great Smoky Mountains to our East and Big South Fork National Park to the Northwest.
