“Agenda and location were superb. As a K-9 explosives detection handler, some great training ideas were brought to my attention that I can’t wait to share with my fellow handlers here in Spokane.”
- Rebecca Jacoby-Lorenzo

“I attended last year’s conference and it was a GREAT learning experience as a new handler in the business!”
- Osmaine Gabourel, Belize

“I think I can speak for everyone when I say, thanks for bringing our community together! K-9 Cop continues to stand on the cutting edge allowing readers, trainers and vendors to work together in what is generally thought of as a divided industry. The work you put in will pay dividends for generations! I am just proud to have been a small part of it.”
- James Allen Parker

Nashville has a vibrant music and entertainment scene spanning a variety of genres. As the city’s name itself is a metonym for the country music industry, many popular tourist sites involve country music, including the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Belcourt Theatre, and Ryman Auditorium. Numerous music clubs and honky-tonk bars can be found in downtown Nashville, especially the area encompassing Lower Broadway, Second Avenue, and Printer’s Alley, which is often referred to as “the District”.

Many visitors to Nashville attend live performances of the Grand Ole Opry, the world’s longest running live radio show. The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, the Opry Mills regional shopping mall and the General Jackson showboat, are all located in what is known as Music Valley.

Civil War history is important to the city’s tourism industry. Sites pertaining to the Battle of Nashville and the nearby Battle of Franklin and Battle of Stones River can be seen, along with several well-preserved antebellum plantation houses such as Belle Meade Plantation, Carnton Plantation in Franklin, and Belmont Mansion.

Although best known for its music, Nashville is a city filled with countless dining destinations. Some of the more popular types of local cuisine include hot chicken, hot fish, barbeque, and meat & three.

Nashville has several arts centers and museums, including the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, the Tennessee State Museum, Fisk University’s Van Vechten and Aaron Douglas Galleries, Vanderbilt University’s Fine Art Gallery and Sarratt Gallery, and the Parthenon.
