SACRAMENTO, CA Feb. 1, 2019 – As finishing touches are being put on the BrandSource Spring Summit, March 1-4 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, some of the more offbeat and fun events are rising to the top of the pile.
One of those is traditionally referred to as the spousal event, an outing or event specifically geared toward members, spouses and/or guests attending the Summit. This year, the spousal event is ratcheting up the fun with a NashTrash Bus Tour.
The tour, a comedy show performed in a bright pink vintage school bus as it travels around Nashville, is a hugely popular attraction in Music City. There are several versions; the one Summit guests will have is the “Ben and Morey Tour.” Ben and Morey are local personalities who star in the Ben & Morey Show: “Nashville’s premiere, untelevised talk show,” which is held regularly at a local comedy club.
On the bus, Ben and Morey entertain their guests with the inside scoop on the city’s hottest new spots and under-appreciated gems.
Jennifer Baldwin, general manager of customer experience, said the spousal event is meant to enhance the Summit experience by giving guests something all their own.
“The NashTrash Comedy Tour sells out months in advance and has received rave reviews, Baldwin said. “We wanted something where spouses of our members could get out in Nashville to just have a good time and get to know one another. These shows are not only to educate our members but to also help them network as colleagues and families. We know it’s hard for them to leave their businesses so we want to make it a family affair and do something enjoyable for their spouses as well as who may or may not be involved in the business.”
The Spousal event is open to all members and their guests — including BrandSource, TRIB, and ProSource.
“The AVB Events Team has worked very hard this year to offer unique and entertaining activities to do around Nashville,” Baldwin said. “We want the members and their spouses to enjoy coming to these events to create lasting memories and friendships.
