We are happy to announce our partnership with LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge. The organization will use the Meetingmax housing software to manage hotel reservations for the 15,000 hotel rooms in their destination.
"Located along the banks of the Little Pigeon River, in the heart of Pigeon Forge, the architecture and design of the LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge exudes a mountain lodge ambiance. When the design and planning for this impressive event and meeting facility began, the name was chosen as a tribute to the building’s spectacular view of Mount LeConte in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The mission of the center is to serve as a catalyst for development in the city, stimulate investment, create jobs, and create economic vitality and impact through scheduled functions that attract large numbers of out-of-town visitors.
The city of Pigeon Forge invested $50 million to build the 232,000-square-foot LeConte Event Center, with the goal of attracting large assembly events, trade shows and expositions, competitive events and special events. Groups from 1,500 to 12,000 attend events in the 100,500-square-foot, clear-span exhibit space with up to 17 separate breakout rooms."
The team at the LeConte Center shopped several solutions and found Meetingmax to be the best fit for the variety of lodging options that they have and the user friendly service. They expect to run 8-12 events through Meetingmax in the first year with that number increasing to 25+ events once they include their baseball tournaments.
We look forward to creating successful events with the team at the LeConte Center!
