With careful consideration and in the best interest of our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, and partners, MTAC Score is being postponed at this time

After cautiously monitoring the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 virus, we believe it’s best to be safe and to follow the recommendation of Nashville Metro Public Health and the Mayor’s Office regarding gatherings and public events.

Each year, our MTAC team of volunteers and each of our hard-working partners work tirelessly to bring you a fun, memorable experience to share with your oldest and newest friends. It’s truly the highlight of our year, and we’re disappointed to not share it with you this April. That said, we know it is the right decision to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

What’s next? We are working closely with our venue partners to explore possible options in the summer. Our priority is to bring you the weekend of fun that you expect, even if we have to wait a while. We are also already diligently planning 2021.

We know that this change is impactful for many of our artists, vendors, and community partners. Many exhibitors rely on events like ours for their careers, and we love them for it. We will do everything that we can in the coming weeks to highlight their work. If you are interested in supporting the artists and vendors impacted, look forward to details on the best ways to support them.

To those who had preregistered for MTAC Score, rest assured that you will be taken care of. If you would like to retain your preregistration for new dates, you do not need to take any action. Eventbrite will automatically move any existing registrations forward. If you would like a refund, use our contact form to reach out for a full refund. Choose “Registration” and include your Eventbrite ticket number.

To those attendees with hotel reservations, Sheraton Music City and Embassy Suites Nashville Airport will accommodate cancelling your room reservation for a full refund. Please reach out to them for cancellation of your reservation and refund.

We want to say thank you, as well. Thank you for the feedback and concern you have been providing. Know that we heard it all, and it played a vital part in the process. Thank you, again, for the encouragement and motivation you give us every day. Given the last several weeks in Middle Tennessee, we know that our community is hurting and looking for levity and recovery. We’re saddened to not bring it to you as soon as we planned, but we are eagerly working toward when we will see you next and have the wonderful weekend we all look forward to so much.
