Devastating floods brought wreckage to one of Nashville’s most beloved attractions and one of the country’s most successful convention resorts. Closed for seven months, Gaylord Opyland Resort & Convention Center intended to reopen their iconic facility in grand style! Resort management directed Destination Nashville to design outside the box for all events. The objective was to WOW, showcasing the best of what was offered in space, food, entertainment and décor while maintaining the theme of what Nashville is known for – music. Planned and executed in a mere twenty-seven days, the transformation of the resort from ruins to remarkable was celebrated to the fullest.  These events earned Destination Nashville an ADMEI Achievement Award for “Best Overall Program.”
