2015 Annual Conference


The National Barbecue Association will hold the 2015 Annual Conference next year at the Sheraton Music City Hotel - Nashville, TN, from March 3- 7.
 
No question, Nashville is one hot barbecue town these days and just plain hot overall for conferences, economic growth, country music, and of course, ABC's hit series, NASHVILLE. 
 
When the NBBQA hits the streets of Nashville next year - there is no telling what sort of carryin' on we will do, but we will reveal all the details you can stand soon.
