Corporate, Convention & Meeting Groups
No matter the size of your event, there is an Opry meeting space right for you. Our sales team can assist you in selecting the perfect venue for your event. Then we can help you plan an evening of entertainment that your attendees will remember for years to come!
The Opry Entertainment Complex, located adjacent to the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, provides several event spaces:
- The Grand Ole Opry House which seats 4,400 in the auditorium
- Studio A - the historic sound stage where the classic HEE HAW television show was filmed and where countless other productions, shows and receptions have been staged. It makes for a great pre-Opry meal location option.
- The Opry Plaza is a lush outdoor plaza that is perfect for receptions and dinners that are truly memorable.
We offer corporate and convention event planners:
- Online ticket booking opportunities for attendees
- Voucher programs at a special meeting rate for your attendees
- Group ticket blocks for pre-planned events and shows
- Representation, character greetings and/or bag stuffers for registration
