This year's conference offers tours of the highly automated Nissan Smyrna Assembly Plant on Thursday. There will be four tours of 50 participants each. A tour will depart from the Gaylord at 7:00am, 9:00am, 12:00pm and 2:00pm. Please note that plant tour #2 departing at 9:00am is currently sold out. Each tour lasts about three hours including the bus ride of approximately 40 minutes each way.
For safety reasons children under 10 are not permitted on the tour. Participants should wear shirts with at least a 4 inch sleeve and closed-toe shoes (no flip-flops or sandals are permitted on the tour). Weapons of any kind, cell phones, cameras and all other recording devices are strictly prohibited on the tour. Participants must take the bus to and from the Nissan plant as there can be no private cars.
Tours will each be sold on a first come - first served basis. The tour will cost $30 and can be aquired by including it as one of your options during registration online. To view a brief video of what you can expect while attending one of these tours click on the link below.
