Summer NAMM has announced that it plans to hold its in-person event this summer, across 15-17 July. The news follows the cancellation of last year’s Summer NAMM and this year’s Winter NAMM due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Event organisers have also announced extensive safety measures for this year’s Summer NAMM. There will be temperature testing upon entry, and the layout of the event has been reimagined to make social distancing easier. You can read more about how the organisers are responding to public health concerns here.

Organisers have also addressed exhibitor’s concerns about potential cancellation, 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.”

It’s possible that the show will see less international visitors 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.
