2014 ISHA Annual Conference in Music City
The International Sports Heritage Association (ISHA) will visit Nashville, Tennessee for its 44th Annual Conference on October 27-29, 2014. The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, located in the Bridgestone Arena, will host this year’s event.
“The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame is excited to be hosting the 2014 International Sports Heritage Association Annual Conference,” Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame Executive Director Bill Emendorfer said. “From live music to the city’s best cultural destinations, Nashville is a wonderful place to explore. We look forward to the 2014 conference being the best attended International Sports Heritage Association conference ever.”
The Hampton Inn & Suites, located in the heart of downtown Nashville is the host hotel, and is just steps away from Music City excitement, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Convention Center, Bridgestone arena and LP Field. Other nearby attractions include the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, historic Ryman Auditorium, former home of the Grand Ole Opry, and Second Avenue – Nashville’s historical entertainment and dining district overlooking the Cumberland River.
Nashville is a suitable host for sports institutions given its own sports culture. “In October, this town will be geared up for football and the opening of the NHL season,” Emendorfer said. “With the Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators and local university sports teams, there are excellent opportunities to catch some sports action while visiting.”
