The Knoxville Chapter is excited to host the Gulf States Region Conference on June 8 – 9, 2018 at the Holiday Inn Downtown. The theme of our conference this year is Forensics in Design + Construction, which has provided us with a tremendous opportunity to look closely at how we have been doing things, eliminating those that don’t work well and moving forward with new and better ideas.
The conference hotel is the Holiday Inn Downtown, which is perched on the 1982 World’s Fair site. Adjacent to the Holiday Inn is the iconic Sunsphere – with it’s 360 degree view of Knoxville - where we will hold our annual Awards Banquet. The conference schedule is packed with both Leadership Development and Continuing Education programs to educate and inspire you.

2017 CSI Knoxville Product Show
Tue, Mar 14 2017
Josh Brock [General Shale] and John Hockensmith [MHM] put together a first class product show this year at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Knoxville. The show always draws a wonderful mixture of old friends and new ones from the design and construction industry. The sold out show featured new products and services. Registrants were greeted by the Associated Construction Women (ACW) who was gracious to volunteer their services. The new component director for AIA, Dale Powers, was manning the AIA booth to greet visitors also. Knox County Codes department was well represented and was able to talk with lots of designers and builders. The food was fantastic. [we didn't know that shrimp grew that large!!] Thank you for all the volunteer efforts and see you again next year.
