Music City Center, Nashville, TN
October 7 – 10, 2020

Nashville grew from a foundation built on music

Music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city and its people. And visitors have ventured here to experience the music that weaves such a fundamental pattern in its cultural, business and social fabric.


Housing Fraud Alert

The Academy is aware that several fraudulent companies pretending to be associated with the Academy and Academy 2020 Nashville, may appear in web searches or may contact you via email promising discounted rates on hotel rooms for the meeting. These companies request deposits or even full pre-payment, but they often do not secure the rooms as promised. It is very important that you only book hotel rooms through our official housing provider, Orchid Event Solutions.

Known fraudulent companies include:

  • CMI Event Travel
  • Conventioneers
  • Corporate Booking Services (CBS)
  • Global Housing Services, Corp.
  • Pro Housing Corp.
  • Reservations Allcbc
  • VIP Destination Management (VIP DMC)
  • Wholesale Room Rates

You must first register for the meeting before securing Academy contracted housing.

The Academy aims to offer contracted hotel rates to all registered attendees. We ask that you please do not make two hotel reservations as this takes away room availability from other attendees. Housing will open May 12, 2020.


For information about parking during the meeting, visit the Nashville Music City Center web site.
