Music City: Nashville Tennessee
Attendees were treated to a special keynote closing performance by songwriter, singer, and speaker, James Dean Hicks. With over seven #1 songs and over 150 of his own songs that have been recorded by award-winning artists, James provided delegates with a memorable musical performance.
But the fun carried into our evenings as well. Monday night had a welcome reception in the SKYE lounge with guest musician Aubrey Grant, and a guided pub crawl through the heart of Nashville on Tuesday, where guests, partners, and Igloo staff were able to network and exchange digital workplace stories.
