The 2019 NAMM Show Hotels and Registration Open August 22

Mark your calendars and make plans to attend The 2019 NAMM Show, the global gathering of the music, sound and event technology industries, on January 24–27, 2019 in Southern California. NAMM members will have the opportunity to register for badges and book hotels starting on August 22. General attendee registration and the opportunity to book hotels will open on August 29.

NAMM members have access to a robust hotel block powered by our official partner, EventSphere, to make it fast and easy to find the right hotel. Booking within the official block gives members great pricing, amenities, exclusive promotions and perks as well as flexible cancellation policies.


NAMM members may book hotel reservations for The 2019 NAMM Show beginning August 22, 2018. Special access to book at an Anaheim Resort hotel will be available at that time. A booking link will be provided on Monday, August 20 and again on Wednesday, August 22 for your convenience. Hotel availability will be on a first come, first served basis.

If you are interested in a hotel that is not listed on the Anaheim Resort hotel list, make a reservation at an available resort hotel and then place yourself on the waitlist for the hotel of your choice. Once you make your reservation at a resort hotel, you will receive an email acknowledgement with your reservation details.  At the bottom of that email acknowledgement will be waitlist instructions with a link to place your waitlist request for another hotel.  Please note we will make every effort to accommodate your waitlist request, however there is no guarantee.


*NAMM Show Hotel Cancellation Policy: A two-night room and tax deposit will be charged to the credit card on file by your confirmed hotel for all reservations on January 8, 2019.  The charged deposit will be applied toward the full stay and subtracted from the hotel charge upon check out.  If the reservation is canceled after January 8, 2019, the two-night room and tax deposit is nonrefundable.
