How to Get Here

Transportation to Symposium

Hello! We are so happy you will be joining us for the 2024 SAVMA Symposium hosted by the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (UTCVM) and Lincoln Memorial University - College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM). Due to the location, there are not many inexpensive options to fly in directly to Knoxville, but this guide was written to give you some options on how to navigate to Symposium in March. 

If you have specific questions about the day of transportation, please contact savmasymposium2024@gmail.com.  

There is one nearby airport we recommend that is the closest to Knoxville and the SAVMA Symposium. Please note that there are other options not listed.
