RECAP: Intro Nashville February 2023 Session

The Nashville Area Chamber hosted another successful Intro Nashville session earlier this month! Aimed at both newcomers and native Nashvillians to gain a behind-the-scenes look into our region, the program includes a treasure trove of information for residents of Middle Tennessee.

Intro Nashville includes three half-days of programming that touch on unique characteristics of our region. The first day of the February session, titled “It” City?, explored our local economy by featuring leaders from a variety of key industries. Such industries included: music and entertainment, hospitality and tourism, real estate and development, and the manufacturing and finance businesses. This day was graciously hosted by BentoLiving and Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee.

The second day, titled Athens of the South, started at Hastings Architecture, previously home to the Nashville Public Library. Participants talked about our region’s education continuum and workforce. This was followed by a stop at the newly opened One22One building to discuss state, regional, and metro government.

On day four, Find Your Rhythm in Music City, program participants met at the National Museum of African American Music to discuss our local culinary scene, community involvement, and cultural diversity. The day closed with a quick walk to the Nashville Symphony to learn more about our region’s sports landscape.

The program concluded with a Closing Reception featuring Former Nashville Vice Mayor and current Criminal Court Clerk, Howard Gentry. Howard highlighted pivotal moments in Nashville’s history and landmarks that make our city special.

Registration is currently open for the program sessions in April and June. Participant acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis. To learn more about the Intro Nashville program, contact Caitlin Okrzesik, Director of Community Initiatives, at or visit

The Intro Nashville program would not be possible without the gracious backing of our Supporting Sponsors: Amazon, LBMC, Lightning100, Made in TN, and Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority. We would also like to thank Intro Nashville’s Corporate Sponsors: Fifth Third Bank, The Ashton Real Estate Group, Polsinelli, and Wilson Bank & Trust for ensuring that we can continue to offer high-quality programming for the region’s business community.
