Nashville confirms 600,000 room nights
The Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau ended 2011 on a high note, pre-selling 100,000 nights in two months for its upcoming Music City Center to surpass its goal of 500,000 and reach 600,000 confirmed nights. The multi-use convention center will be three times the size of the existing Nashville Convention Center upon its completion in 2013.
“The enthusiasm for Nashville is at an all-time high in the marketplace,” said Butch Spyridon, president of the CVB. “Having reached this point, and contracted 100,000 room nights in two months, speaks to the continued high demand for Nashville.”
The bookings represent 65 individual meetings through 2026, and include recent commitments from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
An 800-room Omni hotel opens nine months after the center’s completion. The hotel will feature more than 80,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including two ballrooms, several restaurants and lounges, retail space, a pool, fitness center and a Mokara signature spa.
