Belmont University is proud to be the host site for the October 22, 2020 Presidential Debate. Located two miles from the heart of downtown Nashville, Tennessee, Belmont previously hosted the 2008 Town Hall Presidential Debate and will serve as one of four host locations during the 2020 election, three for presidential debates and one for a vice presidential debate. Belmont University President Dr. Bob Fisher said, “Hosting the 2008 Town Hall Presidential Debate put Belmont University at the center of one of the most historic presidential elections in American history. To be selected again is a great honor, and I’m confident that together—with the support of the Nashville community—we will once again exceed expectations in producing this internationally important event.”


Nationally ranked and consistently recognized as a “Most Innovative” university by U.S. News & World Report, Belmont University is home to more than 8,200 students who come from every state and more than 28 countries.


Nashville is filled with countless attractions and exploding cultural scene along with a reputation for being one of the nation’s safest and friendliest metropolitan areas. Without question, one of Belmont’s greatest assets is our great hometown.


Belmont University’s Curb Event Center (CEC) is a 90,000-square-foot major sport and entertainment complex offering state-of-the-art facilities for athletics, concerts, speakers, trade-shows, meetings, conferences, dinners, receptions and consumer shows.
