Upgraded Gaylord Palms Set to Host PrimeTime this August

July 1, 2022

Gaylord Palms primetime independent retail

A lot has changed since the last time the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center has hosted Nationwide Marketing Group and our Members and Vendor Partners for a PrimeTime. And, no, we’re not talking about that five-letter-two-number term that has been the bane of our existence. Rather, the property itself down there in Central Florida has gone through a number of changes and upgrades since PrimeTime was held there in February 2018.

Click here to register for PrimeTime, August 13-16 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center.

For starters, the property has added over 300 guest rooms in the Gulf Coast tower, bringing the total to more than 1,700.

For the PrimeTime Expo and our education and meeting purposes, the Gaylord Palms has become more spacious as well. The property has expanded to include over 500,000 square feet of flexible convention and meeting space. That means plenty of room for our exhibitors to set up shop, and more meeting rooms for us to fill with top-notch education and training via the Nationwide Learning Academy.

PrimeTime also presents the perfect opportunity for our Members to take a break for themselves, as well. And the Gaylord Palms property has added some great amenities to make the experience an unforgettable one. The three-acre Cypress Springs Water Park has been upgraded and now includes the Crystal River Rapids action river. In addition, the water park features two pools, seven water slides, a surfing simulator, a giant water playground and more.

Members will also be able to take advantage of the property’s four-and-a-half acres indoor garden atriums, 9 award-winning restaurants and bars, the Relâche Spa and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

Don’t miss your chance to take part in the independent retail channel’s biggest and best buying, education and networking event this August 13-16. PrimeTime is a free-to-attend event for Nationwide Members. Head to www.nationwideprimetime.com today to register.
