Safe & Sound - New NAMM Show Health and Safety Measures

Our Commitment

NAMM is committed to doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of those in attendance at our events.

New Health and Safety Services

In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, we will be following the guidance of medical experts and organizations such as the WHO, CDC and Event Safety Alliance, to evaluate, assess and implement the latest technology and event planning best practices, to keep our audience as safe and sound as possible during their visit to The 2021 NAMM Show.

While the situation is rapidly evolving and many factors remain out of our control, we will introduce a suite of new business and personal services, including on-site medical personnel, enhanced cleaning, expanded event security and a reimagined show layout. As we approach the show this January 21–24, 2021, we will share the latest FAQs, medical recommendations and further details on the steps NAMM is taking to facilitate our annual family reunion. 

The health and safety of our members and guests is our number-one priority, and we are committed to creating the most stable, reliable platform we can for our community to unite and reignite the industry. Here is what we are doing.
