  1. Hi, I was just wondering how much of the convention center will be filled? I didn’t see anything on the choo choo being booked so I was just wondering what all would be available for use fans. Thank you for your time.

    • Great question Kelly. We are not at the Choo Choo at all, but the Chattanooga Convention Center is huge too so we’re not using 100% of the center by any means. Instead we take up about 2 ballrooms, 2 medium size rooms, and several smaller rooms. This leaves us plenty of room to expand, but there’s also been plenty of room thus far for our attendee #’s too.
