A new vibe for local online news: Find your rhythm at the LION Publishers Summit in Music City – Nashville—Oct. 24-26, 2019
Put Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 24-26 on your calendar, as the Local Independent Online News Publishers announces a new venue for its annual conference – this year in Music City – Nashville, Tenn.
“This is the first time that our annual summit has been outside of Chicago – the city where we were founded,” said Kelly Gilfillan, publisher at F W Publishing and chair of the LION Board of Directors. “We are excited to move this year’s meeting to Nashville’s Music City Center, where attendees can experience a dynamic conference program and also enjoy the best Nashville has to offer – from amazing live music on every corner, to fabulous food and drink, to close by art and music museums.”
With more than 100 new restaurants and bars added in 2017 alone, plus myriad attractions that include the Nashville Studio Tour and the Frist Art Museum—it’s no wonder that Nashville was named “The Hottest Travel Destination of 2018.”
Registration will be available soon, but lodging has already been secured for those who want to start making their travel plans. LION Publishers has arranged for blocks of rooms for Oct. 24-26 at two locations: the Cambria Nashville Downtown, just a block from Music City Center, at a special discounted rate of $249 for single and double rooms. Guests can either call the reservations number at 888-223-1458 and request the rate for Lion Publishers, mention “LION Group” or use link below:
The deadline for obtaining that rate is September 27, 2019, but the block of rooms will be filled up by then, so act soon. The group rate will be honored up to 3 days before and after the conference, for those who wish to spend some extra time in Nashville.
Nearby accommodations are also available at the Comfort Inn, 412 White Bridge Place, Nashville, TN, six blocks from the conference venue. Phone: (615) 356-0888
