What Meetings Planners are Saying About Chattanooga

"The third time is certainly a charm! We were thrilled to bring our International Conference back to Chattanooga. The city has gone through some amazing transformations since our first event in 2010 and even more since 2018. Our attendees and volunteers from around the world all raved about the first-class service and generous Southern hospitality at every event venue, the multitude of fantastic dining locations, and the perfect weather. We can’t wait to bring our event back soon. Thank you, Chattanooga!"
-Tammy Barrett, Executive Director, Giant Screen Cinema Association 

"Tennessee’s Career and Technical Student Organizations LOVE Chattanooga! Our FBLA, FCCLA, SkillsUSA, and TSA state conference attendees have enjoyed visiting the city so much that we decided to also move our DECA and HOSA conferences next year to Chattanooga. The Chattanooga Convention Center welcomes our student groups with open arms. Our attendees truly enjoy taking in Chattanooga’s many family-friendly attractions, particularly the Tennessee Aquarium. And to top it all off, one of the biggest surprises that Chattanooga has to offer is an amazing variety of fabulous dining options, including the ever-popular Moon Pies!"
Dina Starks, Director Student Leadership, TN Department of Education

"When we looked at Chattanooga, we felt they truly wanted our business and their facilities were a perfect fit for our show. We were impressed with their thriving and vibrant arts scene, museums, galleries and all the other activities scattered throughout the city. We are looking forward to a great time in Chattanooga."
Bonnie Browning, American Quilter's Society

"I was the local Committee Chairperson for the Society for Conservation Biology which held its annual conference in Chattanooga. Previous conferences were held in such places as Hawaii, New York City, Washington DC, England, and South Africa, so Chattanooga was definitely in good company. The Society chose Chattanooga because of our environmental turnaround, abundance of attractions and activities, and the quality of the meeting facilities. The fact that over 1,200 people from all over the world attended is testament to Chattanooga's appeal."
Dr. David Arborn, Society for Conservation Biology

"Chattanooga is a perfect example of what a city should be - clean, neat with fun things to do, great places to stay and very good restaurants."
Rick Hartlein, Peachtree MG Registry

"You have set the standard! Not a single complaint! One could not possibly work with a better CVB or select a better city than Chattanooga. And there is not a better reunion site than the (host hotel)."
Walt Hines, Air Rescue Association

"The Number One comment from the members was: 'The best one so far.' This was the 27th annual. While planning I had the experience of talking to ongoing reunions at the (host hotel). Everyone I talked to was impressed by the hotel and Chattanooga in general. They and I have attended many other reunions. No other city we have been in had a free shuttle. The shuttle was used extensively by all of us to get around the city. This is a great plus for Chattanooga."
