In Nashville, music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city and its people. Visitors come to the city to experience the music that weaves through its cultural, business and social fabric. However, Nashville is no longer defined only by music, now having bustling arts, sports, and culinary scenes. The Omni Nashville Hotel was created specifically to be an authentic expression of the city's vibrant music culture. Across from the Music City Center, the Omni Nashville is fully integrated with an expansion of the Country Music Hall of Fame, sharing meeting and entertainment space, and provides an ideal place to host our scientific program!
On behalf of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America, I look forward to seeing you and personally welcoming you in Nashville!
