Annual Conference Page
1. Stay at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center – VRMA is hosting their event here, so the location is convenient. Reviews tell us that the resort is huge and you have to have a map to get around. But the architecture is amazing and you’ve never seen anything like it. They have a lot on site like dining, shopping, spa, fitness, and golf. A couple things to take note are that you may want to do valet parking if you are driving as the parking garage is far. Also, take note as to which area your room is as they have different areas. 2. Shop at Music City Market Place – When I don’t take the kids, the first thing they ask me when I get home is, “what did you bring me?” Are you looking for the perfect Nashville souvenir for the family? Try out Music City Marketing Place. It’s been a touristy, and not as authentic, but if you are in a hurry, it’s a one stop shop. 3. Visit the Grand Ole Opry – Can you really visit Nashville without stepping foot into the birthplace of country music? Honor past legends and learn about what’s hot today in country music. It’s the top attraction in all of Tennessee. Be on the look out for Scotty McCreery, The Willis Clan, and Natalie Grant, Josh Thompson, and LeAnne Rimes as they will all be in town the same time as us! 4. Dine at Rolf & Daughters – Bon Appetite ranked this restaurant #3 in all of America. Featuring their take on “modern peasant food”, you will find a taste of Northern Italian and Mediterranean influence with a southern flare. 5. Hit the links at Gaylord Springs – If you are looking to put your golf game to the test and schmooze some colleagues, book a tee time at one of Tennessee’s Top Public courses. It’s onsite at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. 6. Watch a football game at Fuse Sports Bar – an American tradition. Fuse Sports Club will have large screen TVs, beer on tap, and mouth-watering food to keep any sport lover satisfied.
7. Try to catch the next best thing –

We opened up the event with friendly registration by Summer Adams as she gave everyone an itinerary and USB key of all the presentations to take home.
