Reserve Your Exhibit Suite Now

Here is a floor layout showing the trade show exhibit rooms. The rooms available do not have a window on main walkway. These rooms end with the numbers 05, 12, 21, 28. They may be reserved as exhibitor rooms with the knowledge that there is less visibility. Call Megan at 800-561-5380.

The 2015 Nashville Needlework Market is not connected to TNNA. You do not need to be a TNNA member to attend or to exhibit.

Cost to Exhibit

The basic cost to exhibit is only $650

Rate for additional occupancy is $10 plus tax per person. Does not include gratuity or other room charges]. Most exhibitors choose to book their room for Thursday night, but this is optional. You will request the additional nights in the complete registration which will be emailed to you October 30, 2014 (do not contact the hotel). See the Question Section below about check-in times and setup times.
  • The larger premium corner suites cost an additional $24 per night ($20 plus tax)

Shipping packages to and from the show? Here is more info on shipping including pre-addressed labels.


Check-In And Setup Times. Check in time previously was 3 pm, but the new hotel policy is 4 pm. Check out time for the previous night's guest is 12 noon. When your exhibit room is available depends on when the previous night's guest checks out. Although some rooms may be available to start setting up before 4 pm Friday, if you definitely want to start setting up before 4 pm, you must reserve the extra night (Thursday) through us (not through the hotel). This is the only way to ensure that you have the same room for your entire stay. You will make this request in the complete registration form that will be emailed to you October 30, 2014.

Shipping To The Show. The hotel can accept UPS and FedEx type packages, but it can not accept shipments on a pallet (truck shipments). For most shipments by UPS or FedEx there will not be a charge to the exhibitor, BUT the hotel reserves the right to charge for shipments that cause extra work. This would include shipments that are labeled incorrectly, or unusually large or heavy. We can not be responsible for lost or damaged shipments.

Sharing An Exhibit Room. We would naturally prefer that exhibitors have their own exhibit room, but sharing a room will be allowed. There will be an additional $160 registration fee for the second business. The second business will get its own door sign and a separate listing in the show directory. Especially for new businesses, the first trade show can be daunting. If you know a new business owner, offer to answer any questions that they have about exhibiting.

Extra Sleeping Rooms. If you need an extra sleeping suite (in addition to your exhibit suite) you have two choices: You can book directly with the hotel at the special buyer's rate. Rooms booked through the hotel are NOT assigned a location until check-in. Or you can reserve one of the four corner suites on each floor (rooms -05, -12, -21, and -28) when you reserve your exhibit room. These rooms are assigned by us, but they do not earn Hilton HHonors points (see below). To reserve a sleeping room (not an exhibit room) through the hotel you can call the Embassy Suites directly at 615-515-5151. Tell them you are with the 2015 Nashville Spring Needlework Market sponsored  by Yarn Tree and the Needlework Retailer to receive the special rate.

Hilton HHonor Points. Unfortunately, exhibitors will not earn Hilton HHonor points for their exhibit room. Buyers and exhibitors can earn Hilton HHonor points for sleeping rooms (not exhibit rooms) that are booked at the special show rate directly with the hotel. Rooms that are booked directly with the hotel are NOT assigned a location until check-in.
