The newer Mills Conference Center (ORANGE) entrance faces Historic Nature Trail & is handicapped accessible. The Event is held in the carpeted Mills Auditorium. This newer 8,800 sq. ft. room with soaring timber frame beams, Craftsman style lights & lodge decor makes a grand impression upon entering. This show floor also includes a 36' x 24' stage, restrooms on the right side, vendor load-out interior corridor on the left side, plus a large separate foyer with additional restrooms.

The Boardroom features state-of-the-art multi media, such as a Creston Symposium, built in projector with pull down screen & 16 
data ports around the table (seats 20). No nail products of any kind can be brought into the Boardroom. The larger rooms Gatlinburg A & B can be utilized for classroom space (nail products allowed with carpet protectant tape).

 The common foyers & halls (PEACH)  connect both the newer & original older sections of the GCC. 3 Registration rooms & the concession stand are also located here. The 11 Classrooms (GREEN) are located in the older section of the GCC, along with the slightly larger Elkmont & Greenbrier rooms (nail products allowed with carpet protectant tape).

The loading docks with private drive (WHITE) will not be in use for The Event. Vendor move-in loading/unloading will utilize the Mills Center semi circle turn-around that faces Historic Nature Trail.  The 4 designated parking spots are for quick unloading/loading only & vehicles need to be moved ASAP. 

Vehicles CANNOT block the Trolley semi-circle turn-around drive & they will be towed immediately. A security guard will be onsite to supervise all load in/load out processes.

The lower original section in (BLUE) has a main front entrance on the Parkway & other conventions may be occurring there simultaneously with The Event. Do not enter from the Parkway entrance or you will have a very LONG, winding walk thru corridors & up the stairs to the Mills Auditorium!

                                  Trolley turn-around must not be blocked!                       4 designated parking spots (right) for Mills Center.
