  • Nashville International Airport (BNA) is the closest airport.
  • Make sure to purchase your airfare tickets well in advance so you can optimize the flight options.
  • We recommend booking your airfare at least 1 month in advance.

You will be responsible for getting to and from the airport as well as around town that is not a part of the Annual Institute’s agenda. Below are a few transportation options to consider when you are discovering Nashville:

  • Taxi | $30 average one way from the airport.
  • Uber or Lyft | $20 average one way from the airport.
    • You will need to set up your account on the website and download their app on your android/iPhone in advance.
