An Evening to Remember at the Convention Center

After a cold and dreary winter, spring has finally arrived! To Knoxvillians, spring means many things: sitting on the patio in Market Square, gorgeous blooming trees and flowers, the Dogwood Arts Festival, and for many of the area’s high school students, PROM!

The Knoxville Convention Center will play host to four area high school proms this season, and we are excited to share this memorable milestone with so many local students.

On April 19, our staff will welcome about 700 Jefferson County High School students into our grand ballroom, and the following week, we’ll do the same for Maryville High School, Seymour High School and Powell High School.

When choosing a venue for prom, there are many factors to consider. For prom, guys and gals will be decked out in their best formalwear, so quality pictures are a must. Luckily, the Convention Center has one of the best backdrops in town. We’re conveniently located right next to the scenery of World’s Fair Park and Knoxville’s iconic Sunsphere.

One of an event organizer’s main concerns is about space or seating capacity. Our largest ballroom is more than 27,000 square feet, which comfortably accomodates up to 1,800 guests. That’s more than large enough to accommodate the more than 700 students, teachers and chaperones expected to attend some of this year’s proms.

Don’t forget about the lighting, music, and refreshments! We’re a one-stop shop for everything needed to make your school’s prom unforgettable. Our event team provides seamless service.  Our in-house culinary team, SAVOR, creates delicious hors d’oeuvres. ACES provides the highest quality linens and furniture rentals in town, and our in-house audiovisual provider, M&M Productions, sets the perfect mood with expert lighting and sound.

One of our staff’s favorite parts about prom season is seeing the amazing themes and decoration the students bring into the ballroom. We’ve seen themes range from old Hollywood glamour and ancient Greece to Paris and masquerade balls. We can’t wait to see how the students transform our space this year.
