Who We Are

Knoxville Gaming Convention spawned off as a group of friends who love games, but hate how far you need to travel for a good gaming convention. PAX happens in Seattle, Boston, or San Antonio, and E3 is in Los Angeles. Seems like there is no major gaming love for the Southeast, so we decided to change that, and we banded together to bring a world class gaming convention to East Tennessee.

We love all things gaming in all its various forms. From a quick game of poker, to VR simulation racing, and everything stuck in the middle. We are dedicated to the art and excitement of gaming. The goal is to grow Knoxville Gaming Convention into the premier destination for fans of fun, friendship, and competition.

What we do

with combined experience of over two decades of running events, there is nobody better suited to bring this convention to life. With multiple high-profile conventions under our belts, we have the background, knowledge, and dedication to create engaging and exciting events that benefit our vendors and visitors alike.

The 2018 Knoxville Gaming Convention is just a small sample of the kind of work we are capable of doing, and we are excited to introduce another great event to the wonderful city of Knoxville.
