People travel in from around the country for the event, so the event has a nice diversity to it. There is typically a 50/50 split of singles and couples, as well as a pretty even split of women and men. There are distinct party areas and a variety of entertainment, so there is always something for everyone.
What is the layout of the event and seating arrangements?
This is more of a reception-style event for the Main Event and Dance tickets - encompassing the Gaylord Oprylands' Ballroom Complex w/ extremely limited seating for the Main Event and Dance tickets to maximize event space and comfortable crowd flow. However, there are more open seating areas available in the VIP sections for the vast majority of the VIPs. If seating is of concern, VIP is the way to go.

If I purchase the Dance Only ticket, will I be able to hang out with my friends that purchased a Main Event ticket?
Yes. They are both considered main event tickets. The only difference is that the main event ticket includes drinks whereas the dance only ticket does not. There are cash bars available on-site to purchase drinks for the dance only ticket holders.
Why are there bars available to purchase drinks if I have a ticket that includes drinks?
We have multiple ticket types for this event and some of those tickets DO NOT include drinks (i.e. dance only ticket). Please check before you purchase tickets to ensure you have selected the correct ticket type. Also, Tennessee ABC law limits the number of drinks served in an inclusive package. Main Event & VIP Guests will be provided with eight (8) drink tickets upon NYE registration.
Do you offer a designated driver discount?
Currently, we do not offer a designated driver ticket option or a discounted ticket option for non-drinkers. We have many, many bars and hundreds of bartenders throughout the venue, and it's impossible for us to monitor who is drinking and who is not drinking.
