During the week of March 12-16, 2000, the 129th Annual Meeting & Exhibition of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, at the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center.

Nashville, Tennessee is the place to be . . .

Whether you are an avid country music fan, root for the Tennessee Titans, enjoy discovering southern history and charm, appreciate fine art, are a food connoisseur, or simply want to have a ball --Nashville, Tennessee has it all and more!

The Opryland Hotel, TMS 2000 meeting site of choice, is an entire convention city under one roof. If you think it can't be done, you'll be surprised!

In addition to 300,000 square feet of meeting space, the Opryland Hotel features 15 restaurants and 27 shops to cater to even the most lavish visitor in an attractive setting of waterfalls, rivers, fountains, and tropical gardens.

Feel like a good work out? Go swimming and choose from three different pools, visit the fitness center, or play a round of golf at the adjacent Springhouse Golf Club.

There is no stopping at the entertainment scene either! The Grand Ole Opry has scheduled shows every Friday and Saturday evening, the General Jackson showboat and Music City Queen provide smooth sailing and entertainment, dance the night away at the Wildhorse Saloon, watch performances at the Ryman Auditorium, or participate in the popular Grande Ole Opry Tours.
