Seven things I learned today on my last sneak peek of Music City Center:

  1. 1. WiFi will be free for visitors.
  2. 2. Music can be played anywhere in the building, including at the Songwriters Hall of Fame, where visitors can listen to song catalogs of Nashville's acclaimed songwriters.
  3. 3. If convention organizers want to hang a car from the ceiling of the 350,000 square foot exhibit hall or drive one onto the stage of the Grand Ballroom, they can.
  4. 4. Music City Center includes seven outdoor locations for guests to look out over the city.Karl Dean also recommends the roosts as potential places to watch Fourth of July festivities.
  5. 5. Music City Center's kitchen, ledMax Knoepfel, can make 20,000 meals a day, if necessary.
  6. 6. Artwork inside includes "Euphony," by Ball-Nogues Studio, about 28 miles of yellow, red and blue beading that hangs about 117 feet long; and "Composition,"Aaron Stephan, which consists of a grid of more than 100 white musical instruments and hangs in front of the Demonbreun Street view.
  7. 7. The average size group at the existing convention center is 1,500, compared to 6,500 at the new center.

The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. has reported that 829,574 room nights tied to the center have been booked, short of its 1,000,000 room nights goal that had been set for its opening. Dean hinted there may be more to add.

"I can't think of convention centers that have opened with the numbers of conventions we have booked, the number of hotel rooms we have booked," Dean said on the tour today. "We'll have an announcement next week about exactly where we are. We are ahead of schedule. We'll be fine. It's going to be a big success."
