COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR has announced the addition of a new Internet café, after-hours songwriters in the round and a redesigned lounge for CRS 2012, which will be held FEBRUARY 22nd through 24th in downtown NASHVILLE.
For the first time, CRS is offering free, on-site Internet with its new ST. JUDE INTERNET CAFÉ. Sponsored by ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL, the café serves coffee and beverages and provides free wireless or wired Internet access for all CRS attendees. Cell phone charging stations are also available in the café.
On the WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY night of the seminar, BOB KINGSLEY’S ACOUSTIC ALLEY will be open for after-hours acoustic entertainment. Hosted by BOG KINGSLEY, the venue will showcase performances from NASHVILLE songwriters. It will be sponsored by BOB KINGSLEY'S COUNTRY TOP 40 and co-sponsored by SUNTRUST BANK.
The private CRS BADGE BAR has been expanded and redesigned for CRS 2012 by NASHVILLE party planner RANDI LESNICK. Featuring new décor and furniture, a fully stocked bar and a relaxed atmosphere, the BADGE BAR is open to CRS attendees only. It is sponsored by CUMULUS MEDIA and CITY NATIONAL BANK.
“These new destinations at CRS 2012 were created to provide greater conveniences and more entertainment options for our attendees. People no longer have to go back to their room at the hotel to charge their phone or get online,” says CRS Executive Director BILL MAYNE. “We received so much positive feedback about the debut of our BADGE BAR last year that we decided to take it a step further and have it completely redesigned and updated. It’s a great place to relax and catch up after a long day of panels. BOB KINGSLEY'S ACOUSTIC ALLEY is going to feature some of Country music’s greatest songwriters without ever having to leave the hotel.”
Limited time, $399 Early Bird registration is currently available for CRS 2012 through NOVEMBER 15th at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com or by calling (615) 327-4487.
