Every year Travel + Leisure conducts a survey asking people to rate their perceptions as visitors to 38 metro areas. The survey asks respondents to offer their opinions on the local style, cultural attractions, dining experiences, and overall friendliness. The scores are then ranked and a winner is selected.
And the friendliest city in 2016 is….NASHVILLE!!!
Visitors said they loved the music, food, and welcoming atmosphere of this fine city. And our lucky ACLEA members will be able to experience all of this for themselves, along with locals who are eager to share their home with us. The 53rd mid-year meeting will be held at the Loew’s Vanderbilt Hotel, January 28-31, 2017.
The best thing about coming to an ACLEA conference is catching up with old friends and making new ones. And Nashville will be just the place for you to accomplish all of that, along with bringing innovative and proven initiatives back to your shop. We’ll be bringing you sessions with a deep dive into data, marketing, hiring, and entrepreneurship.
And with the networking opportunities, you are bound to have a good time. Receptions, fitness, karaoke, and the closing Honky Tonk Dinner where ACLEA will take over the Tin Roof on Broadway for dinner, dancing, and live music! The Tin Roof on Broadway opened in 2014 in the former Hatch Show Print Building nestled among Nashville’s legendary Honky Tonks. Over the years, their stages have hosted the famous, the should-have-been famous, and everyone in between.
So don’t miss a chance to enjoy good food, good music, and good times at ACLEA’s Mid-Year Meeting!
