With just days left until NRB 2022, we want to bring you up-to-date on the most important convention information to know before you go, including lodging, transportation, meals, attire, and more. (And if you’re still deciding whether to attend NRB 2022, we answer your questions below!)
Where is NRB 2022?
The Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center (2800 Opryland Drive, Nashville, TN 37214) is the home of all NRB 2022 events! Gaylord Opryland is located just outside of “Music City,” and just 10 minutes from Nashville International Airport (BNA).
Do I need a full registration to come to NRB 2022?
No! Choose the registration tier that provides exactly what you’re looking for HERE.
While full registration offers you premiere access to Forums and plenary sessions with top names in the industry, you can also register for the exposition floor only, full convention for a single day, or Expo Plus, which includes all NRB Talks and Workshops, Pitch-a-Thon, and more. ALL of these options are packed with opportunities to network with like-minded media pros, meet your next clients, and strategize for the future.
If you are attending NRB as an exhibitor, your Exhibitor registration is the equivalent of a full registration and allows you access to all non-ticketed events.
Who will I meet if I just come to the Expo?
Where will I stay?
While hotel rooms at the Gaylord Opryland Resort have been booked for most nights, there are still places to stay across the street and nearby!
· The Inn at Opryland (Complimentary shuttle service runs between Opryland and the Inn at Opryland from 9:50 a.m. – 7 p.m. on a continuous loop departing near the hour and half hour.)
Where will I park?
The Gaylord Opryland offers both self-parking and valet parking options! Onsite self- parking for overnight guests is available for $32.00 daily. Hotel guests will have in/out privileges, while daily visitors must pay each time they enter the lot. Just pull up to the Cascades Lobby for valet parking at a rate of $40.00 daily. Guests with a handicapped placard or license plate may use valet parking for the self-parking price.
What are my options for traveling between the airport to the resort?

The shuttle runs every hour from the Cascades Canopy at Gaylord Opryland to the airport (top of the hour) and from the airport to the resort (bottom of the hour).
