VENUE

Connections will be held at the beautiful Gaylord Opryland. Located only 10 minutes from the airport and featuring an extraordinary selection of dining, shopping, recreational activities and entertainment, there’s never a shortage of things to do at the resort. After unwinding at Relâche Spa & Salon, practice your swing at Gaylord Springs Golf Links, make a splash at the indoor or outdoor pool, hit the gym at their state-of-the-art fitness center, or explore the nine acres of lush, indoor gardens and cascading waterfalls.

ACL has secured a discounted room block at the rate of $209/night (taxes & fees extra). There is also a daily resort fee of $18 which covers in-room wifi, bottled water, and shuttle service.

The room block discount will end on August 23, 2017. Be sure to book your accommodations early as space is limited.
