Need ideas to fill your downtime after a day of eye-opening e-Learning sessions? We have a few:
- Take a tour of Music Row and visit historic RCA Studio B, the famous recording studio where Elvis recorded over 200 songs.
- Explore the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's ever-changing exhibits featuring the legends of country music past and today's hottest stars. Or check out the Johnny Cash Museum!
- Get in touch with American history. Three U.S. Presidents called Tennessee home: Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk and Andrew Johnson. You can revisit the past at Andrew Jackson's Hermitage: Home of the People's President.
- Try "hot chicken," the food that Lonely Planet calls “Nashville’s unique contribution to the culinary universe.” Available in mild, medium, hot and extra hot, this cayenne-rubbed fried chicken is served on a piece of white bread with a side of pickles.
Registration is $895 per person and includes access to all sessions, events, the Expo hall, plus delicious breakfast and lunch during the breakout sessions.
