CCN16 Attendee Survival Guide

Craft Content Nashville 2016 is almost here! The doors open at 8:15 a.m. Saturday and our keynote begins promptly at 9 at the Nossi College of Art, 590 Cheron Road (near the intersection of Briley Parkway and Ellington Parkway).

We're excited for Craft Content Nashville!

In preparation for the big day, here are additional details on how CCN16 is going down.

What Should I Do to Prepare?

Check out the session schedule grid for the day on the homepage of our website. Read up on the session descriptions to plan out your day. We’ll also have printed programs on-site.

If you missed purchasing a ticket in advance, you can still come to the event! Just purchase a ticket once you arrive at Nossi, and you’re all set to go.

Where Do I Park?

There’s plenty of FREE parking at Nossi. Come all the way around to the BACK of the building to find a giant parking lot. The primary door for CCN16 is at the BACK of the building, too. (Got that? Come around to the BACK of the building!)

What’s the Schedule for Saturday?

The session schedule is now available, so check to see where your desired sessions are located and when. Allow plenty of time to check in at registration.

  • Speakers – Please let our registration volunteers know who you are when you check-in!

The doors open at 8:15 a.m. for check-in and early networking. We’ll have a short time of orientation and announcements at 9 a.m. in the gallery area. Our keynote speaker, Pamela Wilson, will begin her presentation around 9:10.

At 4:20 p.m., after the final session of CCN16 has concluded, we will gather once again in the gallery for a brief wrap-up of the day’s events … and then move into Studio A for the official CCN16 After Party.

Popular sessions may be standing-room only. Plan accordingly!

Sessions

Sessions are 35 minutes long with a 10-minute break between each. We’ll take a little longer break between sessions around lunch time.

Will There Be Working Space?

Absolutely! If you’re a podcaster and want to do a live show from CCN16, bring your gear and let us know at registration. We have several studios available for use in our Podcast Village and they’ll be available on a first-come, first-served basis. (If you want to pre-register for a podcasting room, email info@craftcontentnashville.org.)

If you’re a blogger or an artist, we have workspaces available for you, too! No RSVP required. Simply find a space in the workrooms and start creating!

What Should I Bring or Do Day Of?

  • Make sure your smartphones and other electronic devices are fully charged for tweeting, texting and blogging.
  • Bring a nice shirt and your smile if you plan on having a new headshot taken.
  • Bring lots of business cards to hand out.
  • A small notebook will be nice for note taking if you’re not using an electronic method.
  • Wear COMFORTABLE shoes. Some extra popular sessions may be standing-room or floor-seating only. Plan accordingly!

Got all that? Most importantly, have fun! We look forward to seeing you there!
