Annual Symposium

In addition to the above opportunities, the annual PMI Nashville Chapter Symposium offers a unique opportunity to showcase a company’s products and services to a professional PMI audience. This showcase provides an opportunity to share leading project and program development strategies and support the project management community in the Nashville market.

The Symposium will be April 25th and 26th, 2018 at the Music City Convention Center. Maximize the benefit of your Symposium support at the level of Platinum, Gold, and Silver with additional visibility at our monthly events included in the Symposium support.

For Example: A Platinum sponsor will receive the visibility at 2 Community of Practice events in Nashville,
one CoP event at Ft. Campbell, a luncheon and one weekend workshop at the Lipscomb SPARKS IDEA center.

We are excited for a NEW Military Outreach sponsorship category to increase awareness of the Nashville Chapter’s effort to assist transitioning military professionals in their quest for civilian careers. Sponsors may combine a Military Sponsorship with a Gold or Silver Symposium level support to broaden their visibility throughout the year.
