If you haven’t considered Music City for your next meeting or incentive, now is the time. Nashville’s laid-back atmosphere and deep musical roots, mixed with the grace and charm of the South, make it a perfect location to host your next event. There’s a reason why the city rounds out so many of the “top lists” for 2018 and gets over 14 million visitors each year.
Let’s highlight a few of the reasons Nashville is a real standout:
Musical Meeting Venues
With a name like Music City, of course Nashville offers meeting planners variety when it comes to venues. New to the area is Blake Shelton’s Ole Red entertainment complex. Opened in June 2018, this venue boasts 26,000-square-feet with a restaurant, two-story bar, retail and performance spaces, dance floor and VIP booths and a private event space, plus a 6,000-square-foot rooftop with a bar and restaurant of its own. You can rent out the rooftop, restaurant or private space, or if you really want to go big, the entire venue. In addition to this new spot, Nashville also offers classics like the Schermerhorn Symphony Hall, Country Music Hall of Fame and the Ryman Auditorium, which was once home to the Grand Ole Opry.
Besides musical roots, Nashville has a long history of dishing up some seriously delicious food. Old classics, like hot chicken, continue to be a staple—you can get some at Prince’s Hot Chicken, the original eatery behind the spicy fried favorite. Looking for something a little more refined? Try a James Beard Award-winning chef-led restaurant with Husk, or handcrafted chocolate at Olive & Sinclair. Weave the up and coming food scene into your event with cooking classes, food and drink tours and dinner shows.
Nashville has it all. Appeal to a wide variety of attendees with Nashville’s eclectic assortment of attractions. From the music its famous for, to a thriving arts and culture scene and over 230 years of rich history, the options are endless. For the music enthusiasts, Honky Tonk Highway offers a long stretch of open mic bars and The Bluebird Café has hosted all the best songwriters. History buffs will appreciate treasures ranging from the Belle Meade Plantation to the George Dickel Distillery. The city also has vibrant galleries, unique and local shopping and professional sports including the NFL Titans and the NHL Predators.
