“Nashville seems to be the ‘it’ spot. There has been a lot of investment in downtown, and there have been so many improvements in facilities and infrastructure. There’s a lot of excitement about Nashville right now.”
Christopher Bartholomew, a senior meeting planner for Shaklee Corporation, experienced it firsthand when the company brought 5,000 attendees to town last summer for the Shaklee Global Conference, which had previously met in the city in 2007.
“Nashville is very compact and convenient,” Bartholomew adds. “I hesitate to say this, but it’s sort of like Las Vegas in that regard. You can walk out of your hotel door and have entertainment right there. But it’s far better than Las Vegas, at least for our group. Nashville is fun and exciting, and has all the great music and dining, but it also always feels like a place where you can really bring family.”
