Media Contacts

Contact the Nashville CVC Media staff. 

The Public Relations staff is here to answer your questions and assist you in any way we can. While we do not provide transportation around the city, we can assist with appointments at attractions. NCVC schedules permitting, a representative can meet with you while you're in town to answer any questions you may have.

To initiate assistance, we ask that you provide us with a letter of assignment and/or clippings prior to your visit. These credentials help us qualify if Nashville is a perfect travel destination for your publication.
