 Two groups are changing plans to hold their conventions at Nashville's Music City Center because the $585 million convention hall might not be ready by their meeting dates. According to the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, the American Trucking Association's Technology and Maintenance Council and the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association had booked meetings at the facility for March 2013 before it had been decided that construction on the convention hall would not be completed until April 30, 2013. The HPBA has since moved its convention to Orlando, while the trucking association has not yet chosen an alternate location. Construction of the Music CityCenter continues on schedule.
