Nashville has become one of the top destinations in the US

 Tuesday, March 19, 2019 


Seventeen million people visited Nashville last year. It has become one of the top destination spots in the US. The place also saw nearly $6.5 billion in revenue.


With the NFL draft just weeks away in Nashville, it is certainly good news. For three days in April, Nashville will be at the epicenter of the NFL. Dallas hosted last year’s NFL Draft.


The competition among cities is intense, bringing not only national but world wide exposure. Coupled with economic benefits, it’s a big draw for Nashville.


Nashville may be the “IT’ city, but selling Nashville to the world is important for keeping the success going.


“We don’t ever spend much time looking backward, let someone else take credit and enjoy the windfall, we try to spend 90 percent of our time looking forward, ‘how do we keep climbing that mountain?'” said Butch Spyridon, the President and CEO of Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp.


While the TV series Nashville is considered the catalyst putting the city on the map for tourists, Spyridon sees the show as part of the bigger picture.


The economic impact from the tourism and hospitality industry has been truly remarkable. Last year, 133 new restaurants, bars, and cafes opened in Nashville generating thousands of jobs.
