About Music City Center:

An award-winning, LEED silver certified facility, The Music City Center is Nashville’s convention center located in the heart of downtown. The 2.1 million square foot facility opened in 2013 and was built so that Nashville could host large, city-wide conventions in the downtown area. The mission of the Music City Center is to create significant economic benefit for the citizens of the greater Nashville region by attracting local and national events while focusing on community inclusion, sustainability and exceptional customer service delivered by our talented team members. The project took nearly three years to build and was delivered one week ahead of schedule.

Sustainability – As an award-winning, LEED silver certified facility, these sustainability practices are integrated in day-to-day operations:

  • Green Roof
  • Energy Conservation
  • Water Management
  • Waste Reduction

Small & Diverse Business Participation – Metro Nashville had a 20% Diversity Business Enterprise (DBE) requirement, which we exceeded with ease. We were able to employ 132 small, women-owned, and minority-owned businesses to complete nearly $136 million of work. DBE participation represented over 30% of all contracts on the project.
