We are now entering our final week before STEAMcon! The excitement is building and we are happy to have you all be a part of this special event. Please read this email in its entirety as it contains important information for where to go and how to set up for the days of the event (please note the slight location change to another hall!).
LOCATION: Worlds Fair Exhibition Hall 1 at 935 Worlds Fair Park, Knoxville, TN 37902 (the hall is below the Holiday Inn/Tennessean hotel on the corner of Henley and Clinch).
UNLOADING and PARKING: The Exhibition Hall will open at 7 AM on Saturday and 9 AM on Sunday to allow vendors to set up as needed. For unloading please use the promenade loading bay side of the Exhibition hall that is facing West, the Museum side. Please be set up before 10 AM as we will have food trucks arriving to this location around 10 AM which may make it more difficult to access.
For parking, you can use the Locust Street Garage that is just approximately a block away or whatever free/legal parking you prefer to access the venue around the area. You may use this location to re-load at the end of the day. If you are participating in both days you may leave items in the Hall overnight as it will be locked however specific guards for our Hall will not be present over night and Ask a Scientist is not liable for any items.
DAY OF SUGGESTIONS: For those of you who did not specifically request an extra banner to be printed, please bring one or a display of kinds to indicate your affiliation (you can print same-day nice vinyl banners at Wal Mart for $25). Attendees will be receiving a map at the Welcome Desk that outlines vendor locations in the Hall. We will also be handing out bags and small items to attendees as they arrive and we encourage you to bring swag items and/or information handouts for attendees to collect.
Thank you so much for being a part of this event and we look forward to seeing you this weekend!
