Was here for the Gatlinburg bridge tournament. A huge venue for the largest regional bridge tournament in the USA. Facility was big, comfortable, plenty of restrooms and convenient to many restaurants. Staff at the Convention Center were friendly and helpful.

They had some great arts and crafts show there when we went, but the building looked lonely. I guess because there weren't much people there and not much showcase. I think it was a very big venue for the event.

We have attended many events over the years here. Great facility, clean and safe. Great security which is important as some of the events that we go to are for private audiences.

My family attended the 2018 Winterfest Christian youth retreat in Gatlinburg, TN at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. The center staff were very courteous and friendly, and the facilities were able to manage 16,000 people with ease. I recommend this for anyone holding a convention.

If you have not been to their crafts show it is a must! You can find unusual items at this show. I love going and meeting the locals here! Highly recommend their shows!

We have attended BSA Winterfest for the last 4 years. There's ample space for the myriad of activities that are hosted each year.

There are trolleys that service the main strip of Gatlinburg, and a very few Uber drivers. I was there 2 weeks ago , and only had 2 Uber drivers available at any given time.

There are "pay" parking lots on both sides of the road- worst case scenario you have to walk a few short blocks
