Lodging and Travel

For the first time since 2015, MeridianLink LIVE! and its events will take place outside of California. The MeridianLink Live! 2024 will be at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN. 

  • The MeridianLink negotiated discount rate is $269 per night which includes the resort fee. The rate does not include local and state taxes and fees. This rate is a substantial savings over regular published rates for May 2024.  
  • We recommend you confirm your hotel reservation at the same time as your Forum registration. Gaylord Opryland is a primary destination for other conventions and tourists to the Nashville area. The hotel is expecting a full house during the week of the Forum, and the MeridianLink negotiated room block is limited.
  • The cut-off date for reserving a hotel room at this discounted room rate is April 12, 2024. After that date, regular hotel rates apply.  
  • Rooms at the discounted rate are extremely limited before and after the Forum if you plan to extend your stay at the Gaylord Opryland.  
  • Attendees can cancel their hotel reservations with a minimum of 4 days’ notice prior to the first night of stay without penalty. 
  • IMPORTANT: To make your hotel reservations with the special discounted rate, you MUST use the link found either on your registration confirmation or on the Forum website page marked RESERVATIONS.
  1. Register for MeridianLink LIVE! 2024. Complete and submit your registration using a valid company email address (versus a personal email address with a domain such as gmail.com or yahoo.com). 
  2. Retrieve your MeridianLink LIVE! confirmation email. Check your inbox for a confirmation email that will include a special link to the Gaylord Opryland reservation site to secure your discounted User Forum rate of $269 per night. If you make a reservation at the main Gaylord Opryland site or any other booking site, you will not be able to take advantage of the deeply discounted event rate. There is also a link on the Forum website page under the heading of RESERVATIONS that can be used to book a room at the discounted rate.
  3. Book your stay. Use the reservation link from your confirmation email to confirm the nights of your stay. You will need a credit card to hold your reservation.

Attendees can fly into Nashville International Airport (BNA) served by all major airlines. The Gaylord Opryland Hotel is approximately 9 miles from BNA. It is served by taxis, ride shares, and major rental car agencies.

  • MeridianLink has negotiated a $10 discount off valet and self-parking at Gaylord Opryland. 2024 price will be available in January 2024.

The dress code is business casual during the day and casual for evening events. We suggest you bring a light jacket or sweater for your comfort in meeting room sessions as well as outdoor morning and evening events.
