RebeccaWilliams300-240x300I’m pleased to announce today the promotion of our good friend Rebecca Williams to director of sales and marketing here at the Knoxville Convention Center. Rebecca joined us nearly 11 years ago before the building was even completed.

Rebecca has been with us since the beginning, and she helped us grow and build a great network to bring events to Knoxville. She has a real passion for selling Knoxville, and I know the sales team will continue thrive under her leadership.

Rebecca will lead a three-member sales team in marketing our center and Knoxville to outside groups to continue to bring in meetings, conferences, conventions and other events.

Rebecca began as catering sales manager in 2002, the center’s first operating year. In her first and only year in this position, she was top producer with more than $2 million in sales for 188 events. We recognized her potential and promoted her to senior sales manager.

As senior sales manager, Rebecca specialized in marketing to international scientific groups. Since opening, the convention center has hosted numerous scientific conferences focusing on everything from anthropology to quark matter. More than 64 countries have been represented, and through her efforts, scientific conferences have become a niche market and significant economic driver for the center.

I always love to recognize our excellent staff for their work here at the Convention Center. We are very lucky to have employees like Rebecca that are passionate about Knoxville and our facilities.
