More Transportation Choices and Connections for All of Us

June 18th, 2015. Summit: 1 to 4:30 pm Check-In Begins at Noon. Networking Reception: 4:30 to 6 pm

The POWER OF TEN Regional Summit is Middle Tennessee’s premier annual leadership event that attracts over six hundred key Middle Tennessee leaders in government, economic and community development, planning, architecture, and engineering to learn, connect, and collaborate on the challenges and opportunities that the Middle Tennessee region faces. Annually, 60+ sponsors and partners support this event to advance Middle Tennessee’s regional dialogue and actions.
 
Middle Tennessee’s legendary POWER OF TEN Regional Summit will once again bring together community and business leaders from all ten counties surrounding Nashville for an in-depth look at the demand for new solutions in regional multimodal transportation.
 
National experts from cutting edge new technology companies and major think tanks will roll up their sleeves with local experts from our region’s transportation agencies, Chambers of Commerce, economic and community development partners, and the top non-profits—and all will come together to discuss real world ideas for making Middle Tennessee the most connected region in the world.
