Some say it's the greatest idea since hockey and ice cream
. Some believe it''ll be the biggest boondoggle since the Iraq War, Part II
. But wherever you fall, today's the day you can get the details unfiltered in a debate over the Music City convention center.
Speaking on behalf of the project -- which is expected to cost more than $1 billion when a publicly-built hotel is included -- will be Butch Spyridon, chief of the Nashville's tourism bureau. Playing devil's advocate will be Heywood Sanders, a professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio and arguably America's smartest guy when it comes to the convention industry.
The event will take place
from 2-4 p.m., at Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall at the Blair
School of Music at Vanderbilt
University, 2400 Blakemore Avenue.
Complimentary parking is available in the South Garage, which is located at the
intersection of 24th Avenue South
and Children's Way. Please enter the
garage at the Children's Way entrance and park on the fourth level or higher.
