700K hotel room nights booked in advance at Music City Center

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

More than 700,000 hotel room nights have already been booked in advance of the opening of the new Music City Center next year.

"When you start to book a million room nights a year you start to drive hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars in new spending into the city, so its about jobs, and about sales tax and just a whole new level that the city is playing at today," Butch Spyridon, President of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau said.  

Officials also said there are 86 events scheduled at the convention center which will feature a ballroom and 60 meeting rooms of varying sizes.

The new 16 acre, $585 million convention center is scheduled to open in April 2013.
