NASHVILLE, TN – September 25, 2013 – The CONSTRUCT Welcome Reception was a lively event that took place at the close of the exhibit hall opening day.  The CONSTRUCT 2013 Welcome Party took place outside on the beautiful terrace of the brand new Music City Center on 5th Avenue and Demonbreun facing the Country Music Hall of Fame.  This sold out event took place Wednesday, September 25, 5:00-6:30 p.m.

CONSTRUCT ran a Facebook promotion during the event.  The Welcome Reception attendees who have ”Liked” the CONSTRUCT Facebook page and “Checked-in” to the CONSTRUCT Show got a prize.  Hors d'œuvres were served and cash bar was available.  The entertainment selection was live music by a local band and singer called the Handsome Dogs with John England.  The attendees really seemed to enjoy the atmosphere.

“It’s no wonder this reception was sold out. The location on the 5th Avenue terrace had a beautiful view and the music was great.  It was a perfect place to network and catch-up with peers.” - Chrissy Eissler, CONSTRUCT Show Manager

When asked what they liked most about the Welcome Reception on the CONSTRUCT Show Facebook, one attendee responded “The whole magilla. The setting, the food, the company, the music.”
