UTC Tourism Center
Hamilton County is the 4th most popular tourist destination in TN. Tourists of all types come to our region to enjoy family-friendly attractions, world-class adventure activities, and unique historic sites. There are many places to access quality tourism research on the international, national, and state levels (see "Links"). The UTC Tourism Center exists to serve the unique interests of planners and tourism providers in the Hamilton County region. We fulfill that purpose through:
- Collection of primary data on events and attractions in the Hamilton County area.
- Distribution of concise reports based on primary data collection.
- Commissioned reports on specific issues using a combination of primary and secondary data (c.f. Engel Stadium Feasibility Study).
