WELCOME TO THE
WORLD'S FAIR EXHIBITION HALL

Get ready to welcome the World’s Fair Exhibition Hall!

That is the new name chosen for our venue formerly known as the Knoxville Convention and Exhibition Center. Our exhibition hall, which faces the World’s Fair Park Festival Lawn, was originally built for the 1982 World’s Fair, where it housed the Technology and Lifestyle Center.

Opening in April 2018, World's Fair Exhibition Hall will be a tremendous downtown asset for future event business.

Our 66,396-square-foot facility is perfectly positioned alongside the picturesque landscape of the World’s Fair Park between the urban core of the city and the campus of the University of Tennessee.

CAPTURING THE BEAUTY OF EAST TENNESSEE

The Knoxville Convention Center and the Knoxville Museum of Art share World’s Fair Park as a backyard. We also share a love of art, and, in partnership with KMA, the convention center houses a stunning collection that features paintings, sculpture, tapestries, ceramics, murals, glass and art in other mediums.

Take a tour through our online gallery for images and descriptions of each piece of our artwork.
