Robinson Bradshaw welcomes you to the 2016 Americas Regional Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. Often called the “Queen City,” Charlotte was named after Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the wife of King George III of England. Gracious but resolute, British Gen. Charles Cornwallis called Charlotte “a hornet’s nest of rebellion” during the Revolutionary War. This moniker was proudly adopted, and you will see the hornet’s nest represented throughout the city.

Our accommodations will be at The Ritz-Carlton hotel, one block east of Charlotte’s center at Trade Street and Tryon Street—the intersection of two Indian trading paths from which Charlotte grew to become the second largest financial center in the United States.

The conference program, focused on case studies in crisis and recovery, will take place at the hotel or within walking distance, but we will introduce you to nearby neighborhoods such as Myers Park, the location of our Friday night dinner at Myers Park Country Club, and to the surrounding countryside as we travel to The Fork, a 1,600 acre nature preserve for, as promised in Barcelona, sporting clays, barbecue, bluegrass and bourbon.

We hope you will enjoy this small taste of what we love about the South.
