Event Management

Why Knoxville?

UT Conferences offers more than 60 years of planning experience for events of all sizes. Whether you are planning a small meeting or hosting the world, UT’s professional meeting planners, event designers, and registration personnel can custom design an on-campus or off-campus event to fit your needs—all without the need to use your already-busy staff.

The University of Tennessee campus offers a myriad of meeting venues for general sessions, classes, and activities. If you want the full college experience of living on a university campus, The University of Tennessee offers your participants air-conditioned residential facilities and a variety of fun activities both on and off-campus to keep your participants busy during free time.

Event Management Services

The Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors International (ACCED-I) has certified UT Conferences as an official “One-Stop Shop.”

That means, for any given event or conference, hosted on campus or off campus, we can provide you with one contact, one contract, and one invoice for all university services — from venues, audiovisual needs, and lodging to campus transportation, catering, and registration services.
