Share a Toast to 30 Years of Success
2019 marks ECRS’ 30th anniversary! We want to celebrate this momentous occasion with the retailers who have helped write the ECRS success story… we would not be here without you, so this night is on us! We hope you’ll join us to raise a glass and toast to 30 years. The best is yet to come!
Like many buildings in downtown Nashville, this year’s Conference Party venue has rich history. The Mercy Lounge resides in Nashville’s Historic Cannery building. Built in 1883, the Cannery was originally a flour mill and later a place to grind coffee. The building earned its name when the Dale Food company bought it in 1957 and began processing food (jams, jellies, mustard, mayonnaise, peanut butter, etc.) eventually opening a restaurant called “The Cannery” in the early 1970s. The building housed a country music theatre in the late 70s and evolved into one of Nashville’s primary music venues in the 80s and early 90s. Learn more about Mercy Lounge on their website.
Food & Drink
Enjoy delicious heavy hors d’oeuvres with a local Nashville flair, and a variety of beers and wines. We’ll also be serving a special anniversary cocktail.
Friends, Music, & Fun
Mingle with industry colleagues in this legendary Nashville music venue with a variety of activities to choose from.
Network with CATAPULT® retailers from all over North America, play a game of pool, or try your hand at darts. Enjoy live music from Jesse Labelle, a local Nashville band who has opened tours for Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, and Eric Church! Have a song you’d like to jam out to? Jesse Labelle will gladly accept requests.
