At Peak Performance Meetings & Incentives, we know that an increasing amount of companies are looking to hold their 2014 corporate events at green venues all across our great country. And our corporate meeting planners are no exception. One green convention destination that is attracting a lot of attention from our Peak Pros and others is Nashville, Tennessee. Here’s a look at some of what everyone loves about the Music City:
Green Meeting Spaces
One of the things that our Peak Pros love about Nashville is the city’s convention center. It features all sorts of eco-conscious elements like a green roof, rainwater collector, LED lighting, solar panels and a low-flow water system. Many of the city’s major hotels also have green features too. Among them are no-VOC carpeting, reclaimed wood furniture and sensor controlled HVAC systems. So there are plenty of environmentally friendly meeting spaces to choose from.
Farm to Table Restaurants
Our meeting planners also love the fact that Nashville has an abundance of farm to table restaurants to choose from as well. Some of the restaurants have their own onsite gardens. Therefore, there is never any doubt that the food is going to be as fresh as possible. A few places that meeting attendees may wish to consider when it comes time to grab a bite in the Music City are Husk Nashville, Silo and The Pharmacy Burger Parlor & Beer Garden.
Green Group Activities
Lastly, Nashville has what many meeting planners want, green activities. Two good examples are the Nashville Pedal Tavern and the Green Fleet bike tours. The tavern is actually home to bicycles that accommodate 16 people at a time. They are used to transport groups to great Nashville pubs. The other guided bike tours mentioned include far more than stops at the best watering holes. However, each attendee would be personally responsible for powering one of the company’s hybrid bicycles.
