Common foyers/halls are in PEACH (blueprint above) for both the newer & original sections of the GCC.
The Classrooms are in GREEN (blueprint above) & are located in the original section of the GCC.
The lower original section in BLUE (blueprint above) has a main front entrance on the Parkway.
*The Event will not be utilizing this lower floor & other conventions may be occurring simultaneously. Do not enter on the Parkway or you'll have a LONG, winding walk thru corridors & up stairs, escalator, or elevator to get to the Mills Auditorium!

*The Event will not be using the lower back loading docks. The GCC is allowing us to load /unload more easily in the Mills Center semi circle turn-around that faces Historic Nature Trail.
*Educators should take turns using the 4 designated parking spots, must not block the Trolley turn-around, & should move their vehicle ASAP. A security guard at OUR expense is required by the GCC to supervise all load in & load out processes.
Trolley turn-around must not be blocked! Trolley turn-around is on Historic Nature Trail.
4 designated parking spaces by Trolley Turnaround. Look for our Event sign near the Trolley turn-around.
The Event will occupy the Mills Auditorium, which is in the newer section of the Gatlinburg Convention Center.
This newer 8,800 sq. ft. room with soaring timber frame beams, Craftsman style lights, & lodge decor makes a grand impression upon entering. This space also includes a 36' x 24' stage, large separate foyer, & 2 separate restrooms.
Entry for the Mills Center is located at 234 Historic Nature Trail, just up from the Parkway at traffic light #8.
