The spirit of our space was originally inspired by the innovation, creativity, and audacious problem-solving borne out of the 1930s. Talk about overcoming obstacles and making change happen! Even the constraints of the Great Depression could not stifle the creative spirit of the great innovators of the day.
When designing our meeting space and the outcomes we wanted to facilitate for our clients and guests, we were inspired by the designers of the turbo jet engine. That invention changed the world, enabling more efficient long-distance travel and promoting new ways of experiencing and understanding other cultures.
Just as jet engines convert fuel into energy, the engine by Ankura provides the setting to convert human fuel into the energy required for transformational and sustainable change.

"It’s a pleasure to recommend the engine for meetings, workshops, and presentations of all types. I’ve had the great fortune of leading over a dozen programs at this facility, and it is top-notch in every regard. State-of-the-art audio-visual capabilities, courteous and highly knowledgeable professional staff support, beautiful open common spaces for breaks, and great contacts for catering for food and drink breaks. Ankura Consulting is a top-tier consulting firm, and the engine reflects its understanding of client needs, attention to detail, and commitment to excellence. Highly, highly recommend!"
"I have participated in numerous events and held events for my business at the engine, and my experience has been outstanding every time! The flexible, modern space has easily met the needs of my business. The best part of the engine is the staff that supports it. From providing excellent food, to setting up the room, to meeting all technology or logistics needs, they go above and beyond time and time again. I would not book an event in any other space in town if the engine can accommodate it."
"We have worked with the engine by Ankura for the past several years. From our first meeting, the staff spent time getting to know us and our meeting style. They strive to provide exactly what we need to make meetings seamless and efficient while maintaining a comfortable, clean, and welcoming environment. We're always delighted to host our meetings at the engine because we know the high-quality service we will receive."
"The engine by Ankura is the perfect place to conduct meetings in person or in a hybrid format. First, it’s centrally located in Nashville with plenty of parking spaces available. The engine has the right technology to make it feel like your virtual participants are in the room with you. The perfect snack and beverage selection make sure you are not hangry in your meeting. The engine is our go-to offsite meeting location."
"The company I work for hosted a training event at the engine and could not be more pleased with the outcome. This was a relatively large event planned with little lead time. The engine well exceeded all expectations. The catered food was amazing; the lighting was perfect for our speakers; there was plenty of parking for all attendees along with great scenery, amazing speaker systems, multiple projectors that hung from all the ceilings, and so much more. We will definitely use the engine as our preferred venue spot for future events. Huge shout out and thank you to the staff for making this event one of our best."
