Nashville and The Music City Center

Nashville is booming and the Music City Center is the new pulse of it all.  ASDSO attendees will have the opportunity to take in an array of attractions, including the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Predator's hockey, the world-famous Frist Center for the Visual Arts, a wide range of casual to upscale restaurants, and the always hot eclectic music scene - all within a very walkable downtown district. 

Traveling to and around Nashville is easy!  Three major interstates, the convenient and accessible Nashville International Airport (BNA), and a network of ground transportation options combine for a hassle-free visitor experience.  See more info on transportation and downtown parking.

All conference events will be held at the new Music City Center in downtown Nashville. ASDSO participants will especially enjoy and appreciate meeting in this award-winning venue, which has been recognized regionally and nationally for engineering excellence by the Associated General Contractors (AGC), the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the Engineering News Record (ENR).
