Attendees Beware: Pirates and Poachers Warning


Connections Housing is the only approved, official housing vendor for the Smoky Mountain Gift Show. We understand that unauthorized housing companies may be contacting you advertising cheaper rates and may imply or claim an affiliation with the show or Urban Expositions. Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have fallen prey to these companies and they have either: lost significant deposits, been relocated with little or no warning, have not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked, or have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed. So be sure to book your room through Connections Housing!



As a pre-registered buyer, you can show your Smoky Mountain Gift Show Express Badge or IGES Buyer Badge and park for free at the Bearskin parking garage. Please note, this is the only free lot available and there is limited space. Parking will be first come, first serve.

>> Bearskin Parking Garage is located at 955 Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN 37738

Drover Rideshare

Drover aims to serve Middle Tennessee as the friendly, fun, and green platform for rideshare, food delivery, hospital rides, and more. Through partnerships with local businesses and drivers, Drover is able to offer a wide range of services and experiences. Drover ride fares directly benefit local charities -- 24/7, no catch, no exceptions. Drover wants to have their eyes open and their arms outstretched towards the communities that support their operations. Rather than have Drovers simply move through city streets, Drover wants to actively contribute to the incredible humanitarian efforts already in place in the cities they serve. Everyday, thousands of people serve their community via their positions and volunteering in local and state-based non-profits. At Drover, they want to do their part to recognize and help further efforts through the donation of 2% of each and every fare a Drover ride generates. For more information, visit
