Accolades

We love our meeting planners! Here's what one planner has to say about working with the Chattanooga CVB...

"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, and compared to other conference venues in Tennessee, this convention center is by far the easiest for our students to navigate, helping to ensure they get where and when they need to be throughout their events. 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 of Student Leadership, State of Tennessee
