The Sevier County Hospitality Alliance (SCHA) will host the largest and most attended hospitality and tourism trade show in Tennessee on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
“This will be our 14th Annual Hospitality Trade Show in Sevier County and we are expecting this year’s show to be the largest and most attended yet based on the initial response,” said SCHA President and Trade Show Chair Christie Connatser. “We’ve had tremendous early response from vendors and tourism partners wanting to display and promote their products and services at the show.
The 2015 show, presented by S&D Coffee & Tea, will be at LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge, which will allow for additional vendor booth expansion as the show has continually grown over the past 14 years. SCHA has added over 12 educational sessions on topics such as housekeeping and maintenance procedures, healthcare and alcoholic beverage commission compliance, Tennessee Green Environmental Program, the new Tennessee Health/Food Code requirements and much more.
The SCHA Hospitality Trade Show is free for attendees and open to all hospitality and tourism related businesses throughout Sevier County and surrounding areas. The show is a combined effort of the Gatlinburg Hospitality Association, The Pigeon Forge Hospitality Association, The Sevierville Hospitality Association, Smoky Mountain Wedding Association and the Smoky Mountain Vacation Lodging Association. These neighboring associations work cooperatively within the unified partnership of the Sevier County Hospitality Alliance to accomplish the annual hospitality trade show.
“We want to encourage all hospitality and tourism business owners, managers, supervisors and staff to attend the March 31, 2015 show as it will be a vast “one stop shopping” venue as well as an opportunity to learn about hospitality products and services for your business,” said Connatser. “We expect over 175 vendors and just under 1000 attendees at the show and we welcome anyone with an interest to stop by and experience this worthwhile event.
