About this event

TEA Develops events are equal parts exploration and business development. Join TEA as we mix with local owners, operators, developers, architectural and construction companies in the Great Smoky Mountains. This event will showcase TEA projects that have elevated the region, and allow for new connections that will help your firm source business opportunities in this unique super regional market. Attendees will also benefit from a half-day of sessions showcasing regional development, insights from local civic and economic leaders, and a peek into the running of the most popular national park in the United States.
