Summer NAMM Is on the Move
When NAMM returns to Nashville, July 11-13, 2013, the show will have a new home, the state-of-the-art convention center, Music City Center. Music City Center sits just south of Broadway on a 16-acre site adjacent to both the Bridgestone Arena and the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is only steps from the Ryman Auditorium and Broadway honky tonks where thousands of musical careers have launched.
The Silver Level LEED certified building measures 1.2 million square feet, featuring a 350,000 square foot exhibit hall, a 57,000 grand ballroom and 1,800 parking spaces. A 360,000 gallon retention tank will collect rainwater from the four acre ‘green’ roof to be used for irrigation and to flush the building’s hundreds of toilets.
NAMM Members Are Ready to Make the Move
“I love Nashville—this is a fantastic city! I heard great things about the new center. I was talking to a Nashville native and he said it’s like five times the size of this and it’s going to be a sight to behold apparently.”
