Happy Holidays from Everyone at Hotopp Associates

This year at Hotopp we are celebrating the holidays with the opening of 6 holiday themed family attractions. 


ICE!  is celebrating its 15th consecutive year at all four Gaylord Resorts. With over two million pounds of larger than life hand-carved holiday scenes at each resort location, our designers hope to bring smiles and holiday cheer to you and your family this winter.



Kalightoscope, the Hotopp designed holiday themed illuminated lantern show, returns to the Galt House Resort Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. This year the team at Hotopp designed and fabricated an awe-inspiring rendition of the Charles Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol'. 


Gaylord National Tree

No Christmas would be complete without a tree.  This year we decided to go big. Really Big.  Our custom designed iconic tree is over 40 feet tall, made from eleven giant interconnected shimmering stars, and suspended inside Gaylord National's nineteen story glass atrium.  Each night the atrium comes alive with an immersive tree lighting ceremony featuring a synchronized music and light show.


2015 - 2016

It’s been a great year for everyone here at Hotopp and it wouldn't have been possible without our staff, clients, partners, and family.  Thank you and have a safe, wonderful holiday season.  We can't wait to get started on 2016!
