If you’re an exhibitor, you’ve landed on the right page.

World’s Fair Exhibition Hall is located in the heart of World’s Fair Park. It is within walking distance to the University of Tennessee and downtown Knoxville offering countless restaurants, hotels, eclectic shopping, a movie cinema, bookstore, riverfront park and nighttime entertainment. World’s Fair Exhibition Hall provides a great facility for exhibitors to showcase their products and a vibrant area to explore when not staffing your exhibit. Downtown Knoxville has an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and theaters and a thriving residential population.

World’s Fair Exhibition Hall is located in the middle of a large metropolitan area with three major interstate systems, so events are well attended. We have an outstanding relationship with local media so our events are also well promoted.

What our great customers have to say about us.

“I have been an exhibitor at the Knoxville Convention Center for four years. The ease of getting in and out of the Convention Center – for setup and display, as well as for the potential customers who attend – is one of the top reasons to be at the Convention Center. The facilities are super clean, super nice, super updated. Everything is first-class looking, from the flat screens on the walls to the carpet. The staff is very friendly. I would consider the Knoxville Convention Center the nicest place in Knoxville to do any type of show. I would estimate that leads generated from the Downtown Knoxville Boat Show and Dogwood Arts House & Garden Show make up 50 percent of our annual business.”

Jason Varney, Owner of Dock & Deck

Exhibitor at Downtown Knoxville Boat Show and Dogwood Arts House & Garden Show
“After reviewing the first quarter’s business, we determined the most productive and enjoyable home show we do is the Dogwood Arts House & Garden Show at the Knoxville Convention Center. So far, we have been at several shows – from Chattanooga and Nashville to Kingsport – and Dogwood Arts has produced the highest-quality leads resulting in more profit. This is my fifth year at the Knoxville Convention Center and from the promotion of the show to your outgoing and friendly staff, the overall experience is a winner. Thank you and your staff for a great show, and we can’t wait until 2015.”

Jon Bates, Regional Director of Operations at Mountain View Solar (MTVSolar)
