The Knoxville Convention Center was a great spot for my daughter's volleyball tournament. It's clean and well maintained and had nice food and drink options available. Bathrooms were very clean and staff were friendly. Very convenient to downtown hotels.

It's sad there's not a high end hotel like a JW Marriot, Omni, Hyatt Regency with Lots of parking near the convention center. There is plenty of space there and there should be an event going 365 days a year. But I can see why. No parking no higher end Large hotel space. Very sad!

KCC is a big convention center. We went for the HGTV Home and Garden event in Feb. I have also been to other large shows here and always a good experience. Displays are well spaced and offer good people traffic flow. Booths are all populated with sales and service people who are helpful, not overbearing. The facility has multiple clean... More

There is no good place to park and the building is huge. You will have to walk, no matter where your event is located. If there is designated parking garage, it is not clearly marked. Street and other parking are extremely limited.

I have been to this convention center for 7 years for my son's gymnastics meet. This facility is modern and bright! KCC sits right next to an observation ball with 360 degree views of the the city. The food service had something to offer for everyone with many healthy options. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked - no severe... More
