KNOXVILLE — Hosts and podcast creators, Katina and Kim Kyle are bring the first annual AlienXPO to Knoxville.

Since 2015, Katina and Kim have captivated audiences with proactive discussions regarding true hauntings, UFO and alien experiences, ancient history, strange creatures, true crime, and other unexplained phenomena.

Now they take their audience from a digital setting to an in-person, two-day experience August 17-18 at the Knoxville Convention Center.

“Never before has Knoxville hosted an event that will allow attendees to hear real events concerning extraterrestrial phenomena. There will be people from every walk of life together in one place to hear, share and be floored by the research presented”, said Katina.

The two-day conference will focus on extraterrestrial phenomena that will feature renowned panelist, programming session, vendors and more. Attendees can expect to network with likeminded people challenge existing beliefs and seek disclosure of all kinds in a welcoming space that fosters learning, discovery, and discussion all while having an unforgettable time.

An event of vital importance, AlienXPO will host speakers who will share detailed accounts of reported alien abductions that garnered worldwide media coverage. Additionally, there will be notable special appearances throughout the conference including Dean Haglund, X-Files, Mike Bara, Ancient Aliens, and Andrew Gough, Mysteries of the Abandoned / NASA Unexplained Files.

Keynote speaker Steven Bassett, executive director of Paradigm Research Group, which was founded in 1996 to end a government imposed embargo on the truth behind the so-called “UFO” phenomenon, has spoken to audiences around the world about the implications of formal “disclosure” by world governments of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

Presenter Travis Walton will talk about his amazing abduction on November 5, 1975, while working in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests near Snowflake, Arizona. The Walton experience is unequivocally the best-documented case of alien abduction ever recorded. His book, The Walton Experience details his experience, which became the basis for the 1993 film Fire in the Sky.

Presenter Ken Johnston, Sr., was one of four Civilian Astronaut Consultant Pilots from the Apollo Moon Program. Johnston is a retired aerospace worker, who also served as a US Marine. Widely known for being a NASA whistle-blower, he was witness to NASA image manipulation. He saved and archived early Apollo-era photos that are original to the time before NASA digitized and created an online database of images. Johnston kept a set of prints for himself. His archive is prized by researchers and lunar anomaly hunters because it has been discovered that there has been an intentional, systematic, physical and digital manipulation of NASA imagery and media. He will present the pictures that he was ordered to destroy that show bases on the back side of the moon. They are a nearly-complete collection of 8x10 glossy photo-prints from the Apollo program.

“My team and I are excited to start AlienXPO and bring something different and unique to attendees this August,” shared Kim. “I believe the time is now for the fans to meet people that have dedicated their lives to researching extraterrestrial phenomena.”
