Today is your last chance to save $55 on your registration! Prices return to normal rates beginning tomorrow, February 1st.

Register today!

Need more convincing? Here are five reasons why you should join us in Nashville:

1. Our speakers might be talking intersections, but not in sections 

More than 70 speakers, including elected officials, artists, civil engineers, public health practitioners, urban planners, activists, and much more, will break silos, cut across disciplines, and present cross-sector collaborations.

2. It’s Nashville’s moment for transit

This spring, voters will be heading to the polls to vote on a plan that would fund transit investments, including light rail and bus improvements. With the local momentum building for this upcoming referendum, there’s no better time for Complete Streets advocates to be in Nashville—one month before the vote on May 1st.

3. Explore exemplary local projects through our mobile workshops

We’re partnering with local organizations in Nashville to tour sites where homegrown artists, businesses, community activists, and designers are making streets safer, more accessible, and more strongly reflective of the city’s culture. Stay tuned for more details on our pre-conference mobile workshops, scheduled for 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 2nd.

4. Learn about case studies from across the nation

Our diverse group of speakers will delve into local, regional, and national perspectives on how culturally Complete Streets can support local goals for land use, economies, cultures, natural environments, and the communities that live in them.

5. Save money

Register today, and you’ll save $55. But you have to act now; registration will increase to $250 on February 1st.
