Downtown Convention Campus

Designed for Extrodinary Meetings

Historic downtown Franklin is a beautiful 16-block stretch of local shops, restaurants, coffeehouses, and attractions that has been designated a “Great American Main Street” and continually earns national recognition each year. The downtown campus offers 39 unique locations with meeting space, along with a 119-room boutique hotel that anchors the area.

Conference planners have the opportunity to host keynote sessions in larger venues like the historic Franklin Theatre or History & Culture Center, and then move to breakout sessions, lunches, or receptions at various walkable locations throughout the downtown district. Doesn’t this sound a little—okay, a LOT more fun than your typical hotel ballroom?

Why Franklin? Take a Look


The Harpeth Hotel is a boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Franklin, located squarely within the downtown campus. The Harpeth offers 119 guest rooms, a 2,611 sq. ft. ballroom, multiple meeting rooms, and a breathtaking enclosed outdoor courtyard area, all within walking distance of the properties included on the campus map. 

The campus utilizes more than just one downtown hotel. Only a short 12 minute ride from the downtown campus, there are 15 additional hotels for attendees to enjoy, along with Southall Farm & Inn, a luxury farm resort nestled on 325 acres.
