What is an Expo Center? The Fairgrounds Expo Center consists of eight fully heated and air-conditioned buildings that can be used independently or as a "campus" to house corporate and retail events and meetings. Built specifically for meetings, conferences, trade shows and special events, the 117-acre Tennessee State Fairgrounds is less than one mile south of downtown Nashville, with direct interstate access from I-65 and I-440 and easily accessed from I-24. We have eight fully air-conditioned buildings totaling more than 120,000 square feet of space. We are the second ranked meeting place in the Nashville Metro area.
For nearly a century, the Tennessee State Fairgrounds has served as the host facility for every imaginable type of meeting and event including award dinners, fund raisers, trade and product shows, business seminars, educational programs, job fairs, music festivals, television production, and other activities. As part of its mission, the Tennessee State Fairgrounds Expo Center strives to provide to the community with cost-effective, high-value meeting space and services.
