Bristol Rhythm & Roots ReunionThe Southeast Festival and Events Association (SFEA) brings its annual conference to Kingsport's Meadowview Conference Resort & Convention Center, Feb. 20-22. "We are very much looking forward to hosting this year's SFEA Conference in Kingsport, Tennessee as we feel the area offers many unique experiences for the Conference attendees via Kingsport's downtown district, the Planetarium, and nearby Bristol Motor Speedway," said Amy Doherty, Chairman of SFEA, when asked why the Tri-Cities area was selected.

What makes this conference unique? "Being that our attendees spend their year planning memorable events for everyone else, we want to return the favor and create a unique conference for them. We've had everything from adults racing giant tricycles and motorized coolers to great country bands performing specifically for us. Kingsport Fun Fest and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion are members of SFEA and they have been phenomenal in helping us select local venues for part of the Conference activities. We definitely have a lot of fun in store for Kingsport," noted Doherty.

One does not need to be a member of SFEA to experience this unique event. Any organization in the region involved in event planning is encouraged to participate. The conference offers the opportunity to network with other event organizers and tourism professionals, check out unique vendors showcasing their event services and take part in informative breakout sessions to help planners step up their game.
