The Knoxville Convention Center was honored to be selected as the Greater Knoxville Hospitality Association’s 2014 Service/Supplier of the Year Pauly Award. I was pleased to be able to accept the award in front of our many partners in the Knoxville tourism industry. Thank you to the GKHA and our tourism friends for this amazing honor.

As Knoxville’s premier meeting and convention destination, the Knoxville Convention Center is one of the largest tourism suppliers in the area. We serve 300,000 annual visitors, who in turn visit hotels, restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and many other businesses and organizations. And we couldn’t provide them with an excellent experience in Knoxville without the help of those partners. So thank you to everyone who nominated us for the annual award and who help the Convention Center succeed every day.

Pauly AwardI cannot pass up this opportunity to salute our Convention Center staff members. Without them, none of this would be possible. Our employees make sure every guest has the best experience possible at our facility, a task made easier by the fact they truly love Knoxville. Our staff invests in the community and dedicates more than 1,200 community service hours annually volunteering and serving on boards of local nonprofits.

Successfully hosting more than 200 events per year hinges on the strength of our staff. We provide a turnkey service and assist clients from event planning to day-of execution. We pride ourselves on being professional, friendly and, above all, providing the best customer service possible. I am constantly humbled to work alongside such dedicated individuals.

East Tennessee has so much to offer – beautiful scenery and warm, welcoming people. Our tourism partners exemplify the true meaning of Southern hospitality and being recognized by them is one of our proudest moments. We are thankful to live in a community constantly working to provide the best experience for visitors and citizens.
