The Annual Conference is about children, not for children. For safety reasons, we cannot allow children or strollers in the exhibit hall or in session areas. If you have children accompanying you to Nashville, TN, we ask that you make alternative arrangements for child care. See here for a list of accredited child care centers near the Music City Center which might offer drop-in services. We appreciate your understanding as we work hard to keep everyone safe.
