POMA300Our diverse, beautiful East Tennessee landscape with rolling hills, lakes, rivers and mountains make Knoxville the logical choice to host a conference for outdoor enthusiasts. I’m pleased to announce that the Knoxville Convention Center will host the 9th annual Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA) Business Conference in March 2014. One year from today, approximately 200 outdoor industry journalists, writers and communicators, whose audiences reach millions of outdoor consumers on a daily basis, will get the chance to experience what Knoxville has to offer in outdoor fun.

Hunting and fishing industry communicators, industry professionals and avid outdoor sports enthusiasts will meet from March 19-22, 2014, to discuss industry topics, focusing on traditional outdoor sports stories, such as hunting, fishing and shooting sports. Though there will be many seminars, exhibits and discussions, you can’t expect outdoor enthusiasts to stay inside all day! The POMA conference attendees always take the chance to get outside and enjoy some pre- and post-conference excursions. Knoxville has many activities to choose from with a variety of outdoor activities from hiking and fishing to whitewater rafting and hunting.

Part of our mission at the Knoxville Convention Center is to work with Visit Knoxville and other organizations to get the word out about what a great place Knoxville is to visit. That’s what is so great about this conference. Knoxville and the state of Tennessee will have the opportunity to help POMA journalists produce story material that is expected to generate more than $1.5 million in ad equivalent editorial content. At the convention center, we love it when Knoxville gets national attention!

We hope the POMA journalists in attendance will enjoy their stay in Knoxville, and we look forward to Knoxville’s wonderful outdoor attractions and natural beauty being featured in upcoming stories across the nation!
