Planning a trade show or conference? It seems the list of venues is nearly endless, and narrowing it down to a few finalists can feel pretty overwhelming. But when you compare the location and amenities available in the Great Smoky Mountains, your choice becomes clear.
If you really want to wow them and offer plenty of family friendly fun and beautiful accommodations, you can't do better than the new LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN. Set against the backdrop of the stunning Mt. LeConte, the building and grounds bring to mind a woodland cabin with colorful stone exterior and warm hardwood accents. Even better, the available space and versatility make this a perfect location for nearly any event.
Trade shows, conventions, sporting competitions and more will find plenty of room to spread out in the main exhibit hall. Boasting more than 100,000 square feet of space, and with easy access to several smaller rooms, LeConte Hall accommodates vendors and up to 10,000 visitors in comfort. Also, unlike some venues, parking is no obstacle at LeConte Center, with more than 1,600 spaces for convenient access, plus a trolley service for off-site guests.
If your event offers break-out sessions, you'll be glad to know the facility has several smaller spaces perfect for meetings, classes, and other groups. Versatile configuration means even gatherings as small as 50 people are assured just the right space.
In addition, you'll never have to worry about caterers' complaints because LeConte Center features state-of-the-art food and beverage facilities to keep everyone happy. Even an army of hungry high school athletes won't strain the concession areas, and the proximity to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg means you'll have plenty of choices when it comes to catering your event.
Your event's guests and vendors don't have to spend their down time in a hotel room when you book LeConte Center. They'll enjoy exploring the attractions that bring families to the area year after year such as Titanic Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, and others. Unlike big city convention centers, east Tennessee offers a mix of dining, shopping, and outdoor activities, so all of your guests will find something to love about the area.
Accommodations are plentiful as well, including private cabins tucked away in secluded valleys for the ultimate getaway. After a long day spent at a trade show, they'll appreciate the opportunity to kick back and truly enjoy the scenery, or gather around a backyard fire pit for a relaxing evening with family and friends.
Whether you're tasked with planning a corporate gathering or a cheerleading competition, your first big hurdle is always the venue. Location, available facilities, size and proximity to local attractions all play an important role in your decision. In Pigeon Forge's new LeConte Center, you'll find the perfect mix of space, functionality and location to make your event shine.
