This corner- stone to meeting facilities in Knoxville will also play host to multiple youth basketball and volleyball tournaments in 2017 thanks in part to sports court flooring purchased by the Visit Knoxville Sports Commission. And that's not all. The Visit Knoxville Sports Corporation announced in September that Knoxville will welcome The 2017 Volkswagen U.S. Professional Road & Time Trial National Champion- ships in June. Proof positive that the city is making a true investment in sporting events at an "elite" level. Located alongside the Tennessee River, a spectacular sporting venue in its own right, Knoxville provides athletes and fans alike with an outstanding visitor experience. The KCC and many other sporting venues are located within walking distance of the city's vibrant downtown as well as the University of Tennessee campus. Downtown offers a mind boggling number of restaurants and a variety of attractions and entertainment. It's truly an impressive setting. See for yourself. Let the Visit Knoxville Sports Commission Team put together a game plan for your next event. You'll appreciate their attention to detail. Knoxville is located at the intersection of I-75, I-40 and I-81 — within a day's drive of nearly half the U.S. population.
