PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) --- Sevier County hospitality groups gathered on Thursday to show each other what their business has to offer.

The 12th Annual Sevier County Hospitality Trade Show was at the Holiday Inn Convention Center. Everyone from front desk, housekeeping and group sales were asked to come and learn more about the businesses that run Sevier County's tourism industry.

"The restaurant industry, the hoteliers, just to make connections and to solidify relationships," said Christie Jordan with the Sevier County Lodging Assocation.

More than 100 businesses in the county took part in the show. They believe it's a good way for workers to answer questions tourists may have about businesses in the area.

More than 500 people were expected to attend.
