Due to the popularity of early registration this year, the hotel
room block at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention
Center is already fully committed. The good news is that
Hughes has recommendations for alternative hotels close by.
“For those who would like to have the convenience and the
experience of staying at the magnificent Gaylord Opryland
Resort & Convention Center, there are still rooms available at
the prevailing rate,” says Hughes. “There are also a number
of alternative hotels only a short distance away.” Hughes
suggests for those looking for alternative accommodations to
contact her directly for assistance.
The Committee wants to remind prospective attendees that
there is still time to pre-register to attend the event. With
Nashville, being within 600 miles of 40 percent of the U.S.
population, it’s within easy access for everyone.
