For our first National Conference, we needed a location that would live up to the spirit of Wild + Free and be easy to reach from all over the country - not to mention an exciting place to visit! It didn’t take long to find the perfect spot. You’re in store for a very special Tennessee conference. 

Wild + Free Nashville will be held at The Factory in the charming town of Franklin, TN, home to country artists, rolling hills, sprawling horse farms, and good old-fashioned southern hospitality. The Factory is an old industrial space that was refurbished and turned into a beautiful retail and meeting space. 

You’ll love exploring the eclectic restaurants and shops during breaks at the event, as well as the bustling farmers market happening right outside our door on Saturday morning. On top of this, The Factory has a number of unique auditoriums and theaters to host our conference sessions.



The Factory is located in Franklin, TN located 30 minutes south of the Nashville airport:

We recommend flying into the Nashville International Airport (BNA) and renting a car or getting an Uber or Lyft driver to take you to Franklin. Car services are big in Nashville!

Why not bring someone with you to make the weekend more memorable? The number one comment we get on feedback surveys is: "I wish I would have brought a friend!"
