For a destination that offers attendees the chance to enjoy small-town charm, Southern cuisine and an abundance of outdoor recreation, planners should look no further than Corbin, Kentucky.
Conveniently located between Lexington and Knoxville off of Interstate 75, this small town nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains is known for its wealth of outdoor attractions, but its wide range of event venues and attractions may surprise meeting planners.
That’s why Small Market Meetings is collaborating with the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission to host a giveaway trip for meeting planners. One lucky winner will travel to Corbin to experience all it has to offer for hosting their next meeting.
This Kentucky city has two major event venues, the 100,000-square-foot Corbin Arena and Expo Center and the Corbin Center, which features nearly 20,000 square feet. Both facilities offer a range of spaces and amenities to execute any event.
The heart of an event hosted in Corbin comes from its abundant opportunities for adventure. A visit to the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park is a given to see the roaring, 68-foot-tall Cumberland Falls that earned the nickname “the Niagara of the South.” Also in the area is the Daniel Boone National Forest’s Laurel Lake; an aerial adventure park; a visit to KFC founder Harland Sanders’ original restaurant and accompanying museum; shopping in downtown Corbin; and much more.
The giveaway winner will receive a two-night stay at the Holiday Inn Express, which offers a continental breakfast and is less than a mile from the Corbin Arena. Executive director of the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission, Maggy Monhollen, will accompany the winner on local tours and sightseeing excursions. All meals are included, and flights can be reimbursed up to $400.
For more information and to enter for a chance to win this trip, planners should go to smallmarketmeetings.com/corbin.
Registration closes September 1.
