2019 SMPS Southeastern Regional Conference
Save the date for March 18-20 as the SMPS Charlotte Chapter this year prepares to host a destination conference in the classically historic and vibrant city of Asheville, North Carolina, with its awe-inspiring backdrop of the Blue Ridge Parkway, a project that began in 1935 and spanned more than 50 years under construction. “Foodtopia” is what the locals call their community of culinary collaborators crafting an experience to nurture your soul. Restaurants run the gamut from four-star cuisine to down-home cooking and Asheville also boasts more breweries per capita than any other U.S. city. The vast 19th-century Biltmore Estate displays artwork by masters like Renoir, while the downtown Arts District is filled with more contemporary galleries and museums for all to enjoy. The history of Asheville, as a town, began in 1784. It is a remarkably intact and lovingly restored city marked by a sprawling community of creativity and innovation. Please join SMPS SERC this year as we plan to unlock the secrets to Asheville’s storied past, enjoy the dynamic community of today, and discover how the A/E/C industry continues to reshape the landscape in 2019.
