3 Reasons to Attend Summit This Year

Having attended Summit last year in Tampa, I can probably give at least 100 reasons why you’d never regret investing in this education-filled, exciting conference. But I’ll narrow it down to 3 main reasons to attend in 2017: The Pre-Conference Academy, the breakout sessions, and the great location in Nashville.

This one is a no-brainer. Nashville, known as Music City, is the home to some of the greatest musical destinations in North America: The Country Music Hall of Fame, The Grand Ole Opry, The Johnny Cash Museum and the Patsy Cline Museum to name just a few.

Nashville is also home to Third Man Records, a recording studio launched by Jack White of the White Stripes. You can record your own song and have it created on vinyl within a few minutes!

Be sure to check out some live music in downtown Nashville, you never know what up-and-coming singers and songwriters you might see. Artists like Willie Nelson, Shania Twain, Lady Antebellum and Kings of Leon got their start in Nashville.
