Travel Advisory for NAMM Show Attendees

Travel Advisory for NAMM Show Attendees

As the global music products, pro audio and event technology industry prepares to gather in Anaheim, California, NAMM is working with our destination partners to provide a seamless experience on your journey to the Show. When traveling to and from The NAMM Show, please consider the following:

At The NAMM Show: A Traffic Alert

On Thursday, January 24, from 5–7 pm a demonstration by Local Union 11/Unite Here will take place at the corners of Harbor Blvd. and Katella. The demonstration is in pursuit of a contract renewal for hotel workers of the Hilton Anaheim and Sheraton Anaheim. We do not expect The NAMM Show, hotel or convention services and/or The NAMM Show Campus to be directly affected by this demonstration.

While this is expected to be a peaceful demonstration, traffic will be impacted. Please expect travel delays during this time and plan accordingly.

For those utilizing the NAMM shuttle on Katella, across the street from ACC North, the pickup location will remain functional during this time. Please check the "NAMM Shows" app or The NAMM Show on Twitter for the latest transportation update. Additionally, any member of the NAMM Staff will be able to help provide you with the latest travel updates during this time.

Air Travel and the Government Shutdown

Currently, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is open and operational at airports nationwide with no indication by the federal government of service interruption. While reports of airport security wait times are leading the headlines, TSA is open and functional. Domestic travel airline passengers can prepare ahead with the TSA app: https://www.tsa.gov/mobile

The MyTSA app provides airline passengers with 24/7 access to the most frequently requested airport security information on any mobile device and real-time updates of security delays.

For international travelers, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has shared an online, real-time calculator of airports around the country with average wait times for clearance. This can be accessed without an app download by visiting: https://awt.cbp.gov/
