Summer NAMM will be taking place this summer as an in-person event from 15-17 July. Last year, the Nashville event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while the Winter NAMM Show was held virtually.

The organisers are collaborating with City of Nashville and local authorities to hold the event with appropriate safety and security measures. Summer NAMM will follow guidance from the World Health Organisation and Center for Disease Control.

The layout of the venue has also been changed to make social distancing easier. The organisers explain the measures in more detail here.

Organisers have acknowledged concerns regarding cancellations, writing in a statement: “If the event is cancelled due to forces beyond our control, we will offer multiple options to utilize your deposit, including a full refund.”

Check out some highlights from Summer NAMM 2019, when the event was last held.

Summer NAMM 2021 may see less international visitors than usual this year, as international travel may still be restricted from some countries by July 2021.

Registration to attend the event isn’t open yet, however you can sign up to be notified when that changes.
