UPDATE: The Resort negotiated convention discount price ends at 5pm on Thursday, May 6th! Don't wait to get your reservations for this amazing resort at the greatly reduced rate!
Resort registration link is at the bottom of the page. Due to the way 2020 worked out, Opryland had to cancel all resort reservations. This means everyone who is attending will need to re-register for their resort rooms. The NGRC 2020 & 2021 Convention Committee has worked tirelessly to negotiate great rates on this one-of-a-kind family and friend vacation! (More details below...)
The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center is a prime location. Everything you could possibly want is on location including 19 restaurants, multiple large climate-controlled garden atriums, numerous sitting areas, a leisurely boat ride on a 1/4 mile river with waterfalls, coffee shops, a full-service day spa, three pools, a complete waterpark, shopping centers, and over 2,800 rooms… all of this on site! In fact, Opryland Resort is the largest hotel and convention center under one roof in the entire world. (7th largest in the world.)
Of course, if you want to explore more of the Nashville area there are numerous famous landmarks literally on the complex including the renowned Grand Ole Opry music center, the famous Opry Mills Mall, the General Jackson Showboat and much, much more!
Some Resort Info…
This is a resort. (Notice we didn’t say hotel.) We have negotiated heavily to make this a once-in-a-lifetime chance to stay at a high-end, iconic location during your stay in Nashville. We chose the resort in order to make your stay in Tennessee as comfortable as possible, and because everything you need is on site.
Our contract with the resort gets you a room at the cost of $204 per night. (It would normally be $290 or more!) When we ran the numbers, the math works out to only $32 more (including taxes and fees) than the previous two convention hotels and even our clubs stingiest members have stated that the price is absolutely worth it to be in this fabulous resort and to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere it provides.

NOTE: There is a highly limited number of rooms available before and after the convention dates due to large events in Nashville. The following dates are on a first come- first served basis... May 30th, June 6th, and June 7th. Once they are gone, they're gone.
In order to stay at the resort before or after the convention you may need to call Opryland and the convention rate is likely not available. This is beyond our control and normal rates would be up to the Opryland Resort.
