WELCOME TO "MUSIC CITY"
Nashville, also known as "Music City", is home to the legendary Grand Ole Opry broadcast. Though it's often noted for its role in the development of country and bluegrass, Nashville has become a hub for all musical genres. Notable artists such as Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Jimmy Buffett have all written, recorded, and produced music in this illustrious city.

Dress for the International Showcase is professional/casual business attire. Costumes are not allowed. Comfortable shoes are recommended. The attire for evening events is casual. Please note, all delegates are encouraged to wear something black and white for our closing night's event – our 2nd annual Black and White "Y'ALL BALL". It is anything but formal but a fun evening of good food, conversation and great music.

Weather in Nashville
This year we are anticipating a cooler than average winter. Low temperatures in early December, in Nashville, generally range from 40°-49° F (4-9° C) and highs are generally in the upper 50's F. We are also anticipating below-normal precipitation but you can never predict the weather so we recommend light coats and sweaters.
