Memorial Day weekend was a hit for 73 guests from Patriot Gold Chapter of Young President's Organization (YPO). We hit the ground running from Friday to Monday to showcase all that Music City has to offer!
Host Hotel: Noelle Hotel
All Around Nashville
From a rooftop welcome reception at Rare Bird atop Noelle Hotel, a downtown scavenger hunt, a kayaking trip on the Cumberland River, to a farm-to-table dinner out in the country, this group experienced a variety of venues and neighborhoods while in town.
Event Planning Services Provided:
Destination management and full-service event planning was provided by Big Events, Inc. From initial planning with YPO committee to daily on-site management, to design & decor, and everything in between Big Events, Inc. crafted a tailored family weekend.
Our goal is to allow group sightseeing to be fun and experiential. One activity was creating a team-based, downtown scavenger hunt the very first morning . This not only allows members of the group to get to know each other more but it also acclimated the entire group to Nashville. We curated optional activities for guests to see and experience Nashville from unique angles such as really entertaining tours and a private kayaking trip on the Cumberland that ends with a skyline view.
Big Events, Inc. creates experiences that are exclusive and VIP minded. We strive for clients to go behind the scenes and see what Nashville is really like. Most of the best of Nashville is off of Broadway (although Broadway is super fun too)! One VIP experience we sourced is a singer & songwriting experience at local recording studio. YPO was able to work with several incredible songwriters who are living and breathing the Nashville dream! Together over a local lunch of Hattie B's and Jeni's, they wrote and recorded three new songs! Other VIP elements YPO experienced is a completely private shopping trip to several local brands and a private chocolate cooking class at the one and only Goo Goo Shop!
Music, Music, Music:
Every aspect of this weekend was touched by music! Highlights included rooftop karaoke at Rare Bird, boot scooting boogie line dancing, bluegrass country trios, a private tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame, to a concluding local singer & songwriter in the round. Showcasing Nashville means completely living up to its nickname of Music City.
Take It Home:
No trip to Nashville is complete without a few southern gifts! We work solely with local brands and artists to allow daily gifts to be tailored and unique. From bath products, to tasty treats, to hot chicken spices, to a DIY screen printed t-shirt every take-home gift YPO received accented true Nashville lifestyle.
Experience Driven Destination Management:
Being an experience-driven event designer means pleasing and planning for all the senses. From eye catching rooftop views, to amazing local delicacies, to incredible country sounds...Nashville has it all. Our goal and mission to showcase all it has to offer! No matter how long you have in Music City, there is something fun for all ages.
"I am a member (spouse) of the YPO Gold New England chapter and we hired Big Events to assist us in running a Nashville Family Weekend over Memorial Day Weekend 2019. As one of three co-chairs of the event, I worked very closely with Big Events planning three days and three nights of activities, meals, hotel, gifts and more that would please a range of ages from 14 years old and up. There were 73 attendees. The weekend was a HUGE success thanks to the AMAZING services Big Events provided. Big Events oversaw our weekend and I would give them an A+, excellent job! Their attention to detail was unfailing and they were extremely professional and organized from the start. We had budget concerns but ended up coming in UNDER budget for the weekend. I highly recommend the Big Events team for any event or occasion you are planning. The team members work collaboratively, professionally and are truly genuine, nice people. " -YPO Committee Member
