LifeinColor2300Knoxville and the surrounding region holds a great variety of people with a wide assortment of different interests, but there’s something for each and every guest who comes through the doors of the Knoxville Convention Center. One of my favorite things about my job is being able to bring in these diverse events that will appeal to a spectrum of interests and age groups.

We have something to offer to everyone from college students to senior citizens. One recent unique event recently held at the center was “Life in Color,” made famous under its former name, “Dayglow.” Known as “the world’s largest paint party,” this EDM (Electronic Dance Music) show is immensely popular among college students across the country and has come to the Knoxville Convention Center twice. At this year’s party themed E.N.D. or Electronic Never Dies, we packed the center with young people decked out in white and neon colors getting sprayed with vibrant, washable neon-colored paint throughout the show. The show itself included DJs, dance music, aerial artist and many other exciting attractions.

Electronic dance music not up your alley? No worries. We host everything from scientific conferences, pet stylist shows and national quilting conferences to bridal shows, horseshoe competitions and comic book conferences.

LifeinColor300In 2012, we’ve had several niche conferences come to the center. The 60th annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America held a few weeks back brought an interesting crowd to Knoxville united by their passion for all things bug-related. Earlier this year, we hosted the 2012 Pet Stylists Super Show filled with furry friends and their “stylists” from across over the country showing off their unique dog-grooming techniques. It was quite a sight!

For the comic-book enthusiast, we just held the 10th anniversary of Adventurecon here at the center. Fans of movies, books and television shows came out dressed in full costume for a chance to buy paraphernalia and meet some of their favorite television and movie stars. You never know what you’ll run into at the center.

Whatever your desire, we are sure to have something to fit your needs. We even host weddings, receptions and private events, and our amazing in-house team will tailor everything to your specific wants and needs.

We work hard to give every person that special day. No matter if you’re attending an event at the Convention Center or hosting a wedding or party, our team makes sure everyone leaves our center happy!
