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
