"Thank you for all you did to make our ADTA event a huge, huge success. Everything worked like clockwork throughout the event, and everyone loved the Nashville experience. We couldn't be happier with the services the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp provided."

"The show was a huge success - one for the record books! We had record attendance, one of the largest trade shows we've ever had and or sponsorship program increased over 25 percent. We couldn't have done it without the NCVC. The 2017 show has truly made our convention the premier event for our industry. Thank you to the NCVC for all that you did to make this event run smoothly. We throw a lot of curve balls at you sometimes and you just take it in stride. You did a great job helping us showcase the city for our exhibitors and were instrumental in helping us plan the successful events that we did. You truly are one of the best in the business. Other cities should take a page out of your book when it comes to hosting large conventions. The customer service the NCVC provides is like no other. You and Nashville set the bar high!"

"Our 2017 NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo was another raging success! Our numbers were fantastic, and we broke the record for the number of exhibitors set last year in Nashville. For the second year in a row, the team at Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp just knocked it out of the ballpark! They ensured that every need we had, down to the smallest of details, was tended to with the utmost professionalism. Their assistance through the planning process and implementation of the event was immeasurable, and I can't thank them enough! We continue receive exceptional feedback from our exhibitors and attendees, and I look forward to continuing our relationship with Nashville in 2020, 2022 and 2023. With all the new hotels coming online in the next few years, I am thrilled to know we will be returning multiple times. Many, many thanks to you and your extraordinary Nashville CVC team, each person who worked on our show, directly or indirectly, deserves accolades!"

"On behalf of the American Trucking Associations and the Technology & Maintenance Council, I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to the NCVC staff for the time and hard work everyone contributed to making ATA's 2017 TMC Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition yet another remarkable success. From the pre-show planning to the on-site support, this meeting would not have been successful without the tremendous assistance, guidance and teamwork provided from the NCVC to ours. Please extend my sincere gratitude and praise to all our staff for the true Southern hospitality we received."

"Our attendees loved Nashville - the walkable city, the convention center, the food and the music! The CVC staff is great to work with, very knowledgeable and attentive. They are doing a great job to make Nashville a destination city."

"We always look forward to bringing our event to Nashville! The entire city embraces us and guarantees a memorable experience. The CVC makes planning and execution easy! The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center has become the benchmark against which we measure our other event hotels. The staff is friendly, genuine and helpful, and the space is massive but can be intimate at the same time. After sessions are done, Nashville offers something for everyone - music, food, sports, history, culture - all within easy access. Nashville is our attendees' favorite destination by far."

"Nashville is one of my very favorite places to meet. It has everything on your check list: huge brand recognition; dynamic downtown location; walkable; beautiful headquarters hotel; warm and friendly people; creative CVC who understands every group is unique and different. It literally has it all! I love it and my members love it, too!"

"I want to thank the Nashville CVC so much for your assistance with our convention. From coordinating the delivery of attractions maps and visitors guides to the digital welcome signage at the airport and speaking at the spouses' breakfast, you've been an absolute pleasure to work with. We are coming back to Nashville in January 2020, and I'll be sure to reach to you again."
