ABPA 2023 Nashville Convention

The 43rd ABPA Annual Meeting and Convention will be held in Nashville, Tennessee at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Nashville Downtown from April 25-27, 2023. After numerous site visits by the ABPA Convention Committee members, the DoubleTree was chosen for its ideal location in downtown Nashville, their modern meeting space, and tremendous value for our attendees.

The ABPA Convention is the place to be to meet and network with the major players in our industry. In attendance will be parts distributors, manufacturers, vendors, and electronic information providers. In addition to a full schedule of informative speakers and breakout sessions, the ABPA will be hosting a special dinner party at the Lookout Rooftop at Ole Red on Thursday evening, 4/27/23. You will not want to miss this incredible event!

Mark your calendars now – we look forward to seeing you in Nashville!
