Event Venue

The Scarritt-Bennett Conference Center

Scarritt Bennett Center is a nonprofit conference, retreat, and education center in Nashville, TN. Our mission is to create space where individuals and groups engage each other to achieve a more just world.



AABH is doing the conference a new way this year. We are not having the event at a hotel. While we have arranged for a block of rooms at a key hotel, you can book rooms anywhere you would like. We negotiated a fixed rate at only one hotel, so you're on your own if you choose a different hotel, AirBNB or other option. We are working with Scarritt- Bennett Center to get some clarificaton on the housing they offer. It's dorm style housing at a decent rate as well. We will post that option when we have more information.

Hotel Partner - Embassy Suites at Vanderbilt

AABH has secured a block of rooms at the Embassay Suites near the Scarritt-Bennet Center. They have a limited number of rooms on hold, but you can book that room at the AABH rate of


This is an incredible rate for that week. So don't wait to get a hold on a room. They will hold that block until it is full or until March 23rd (whichever happens first).

Book Here: Embassy Suites Nashville

If you call the Hilton reservation line (1-800-HILTONS), you will need to provide this booking code: 90C
