NAMM Member Hotel Booking Policy - New and Updated

Beginning at 8 a.m. PT on Wednesday, Aug. 22, NAMM members will have access to make reservations at an Anaheim Resort hotel. Hotel availability will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Those 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 themself on the waitlist for the hotel of your choice.

Steps to get on the waitlist for a NAMM Campus Hotel

Make a reservation at an available Anaheim Resort hotel.
Verify that you have received an email confirmation for your hotel reservation. Click on the waitlist link located at the bottom of your email confirmation to place your waitlist request. Once on the waitlist, NAMM will contact you if accommodations at a NAMM Campus hotel are available.

Hotel Cancellation Policy - New and Updated

A two-night room and tax deposit will be charged to the credit card on file by your confirmed hotel for all reservations on Jan. 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 Jan. 8, 2019, the two-night room and tax deposit is nonrefundable.

Beware of hotel poachers!

NAMM does not endorse booking hotel reservations though any source other than EventSphere, its official hotel booking partner, and will not be able to protect attendees from a non-refundable deposit or lack of reservation completely should they book with another third-party housing provider.

Should you be contacted by someone other than EventSphere regarding hotel opportunities at The 2019 NAMM Show, NAMM asks that you let them know by emailing
