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


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.
