Destination management company Access Destination Services has expanded into Nashville, Tennessee, an area the company describes as one of the fastest growing meeting destinations in the world, reports International Meetings Review. The Access office will serve both the Memphis and Nashville metropolitan areas.
With Nashville named a top destination for 2018 and beyond, industry veterans and current Acess Partners Danielle Phippen and Heidi Brown say they have seen a great deal of interest in the destination.
Nashville has seen a number of major new event hotels open recently, including the JW Marriott Nashville, a new, 533-room luxury hotel that opened this year. Set in a 33-story building across from The Music City Center in the downtown area, the hotel has two ballrooms, encompassing over 25,000 sf of meeting space and outfitted with a custom carpet reminiscent of Nashville’s rapidly developing skyline and caged lighting. The 16 meeting rooms and two permanent boardrooms all have views of the city with an abundance of natural light.
