LMG signed a multi-year audio visual contract with the Music City Center to support the facility with dedicated onsite staff and equipment. LMG’s new 24,000 square foot Nashville office and warehouse, less than five miles from the Music City Center, opened in October 2012, and houses state of the art equipment inventory to support the clients of the convention center for general sessions, breakouts and exhibits. In addition, the LMG Design Studio is walking distance from the MCC and provides a hands-on environment for clients to brainstorm and discuss creative ideas, while immersed in the latest live entertainment technology.
To manage the onsite operation, LMG is also pleased to announce the hiring of Curt Wallen as accounts manager. A resident of Nashville, Wallen has over 20 years of experience supporting event production in venues across the country, and will direct the LMG onsite team at the MCC, overseeing client accounts, operations, marketing and business development.
The Music City Center features 1.2 million square feet, a 350,000 square foot exhibit hall, a 57,000 square foot grand ballroom and 18,000 square foot junior ballroom, and about 1,800 parking spaces. It also offers 90,000 square feet of meeting room space — approximately 60 meeting rooms - and 32 loading docks that provide ultimate flexibility and ease of loading in and out for convention planners. The building is on track to receive LEED Silver certification.
