The annual Baseball Winter Meetings will return to Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Resort in 2012, marking the sixth time that the annual gathering of professional baseball club and league executives will be held in Nashville. The Baseball Trade Show and the Professional Baseball Employment Opportunities Job Fair will also be held on site during the convention, from December 3-6, 2012.
Opryland previously hosted the Baseball Winter Meetings in 1983, 1989, 1998, 2002 and 2007.
Opryland is currently undergoing a restoration because of the record floods Nashville experienced in early May. The hotel, with over 2,800 guest rooms and 174 suites, is scheduled to re-open on November 15.
“Nashville, and the Opryland Hotel, have long been effective meeting spots for baseball,” Pat O’Conner, Minor League Baseball President, said.
The 2010 Baseball Winter Meetings will be held at The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort from December 6-9. The Swan and Dolphin Resort also hosted the Baseball Winter Meetings in 2006. Next year’s convention is slated for December 5-8 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.
