Thank you for bearing with us during this unprecedented time. Over the past few months, we’ve worked with our partners and monitored the ongoing development of COVID-19 in our local Middle Tennessee community and across the country. Considering the outlook for the rest of the year and the best interest of our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, and partners, we’ve come to a decision for our upcoming MTAC Score’s dates. 

We will be holding MTAC Score on April 2-4, 2021 at the Sheraton Music City and Embassy Suites Nashville Airport hotels.

We very much want to see you all again, and though we had hoped and planned to do so in late summer this year, we don’t want to put anyone at unnecessary risk to do so. While we are disappointed to not see you yet, we’re looking forward to returning next spring! Here’s what that will look like.

We’re working with our previously announced guests to carry over to 2021, as well as looking into new additions! We’ll announce confirmations for those guests separately. If anyone cannot attend, we’ll also announce that so you don’t have to wonder.

If you were a confirmed panelist for 2020, we will be reaching out to panelists soon to reconfirm programming applications for the new dates.

Registration and hotel reservations for 2021 will also reopen later this summer. If you had preregistered for MTAC Score, you’re all set! Existing preregistration will carry over to 2021 without any action from you. If you would like a refund or have any questions about your registration, you can reach out through our contact form by selecting “Postponement Questions.” Please include your name and order number, if possible. If you already processed a refund and want to preregister again, you’ll be able to do that as normal when registration reopens.

In the lead up to MTAC Score, we want to once again highlight our artists and vendors! Many exhibitors rely on events like ours for their well-being, and we love them for it. If you are interested in supporting our artists and vendors, you can find them on our artist alley page and our dealer room page.

We will continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 for the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area, and if there are significant changes we will re-evaluate our plans alongside our venues and the city of Nashville. The well-being of our attendees, guests, partners, exhibitors, and volunteers is our top priority. We will update our website and social media with any future changes.

We again want to say thank you for your understanding during these trying times. Like you, we want to see everyone healthy and happy and looking forward to getting together again when it’s safe and makes sense! We look forward to bringing you all the fun weekend we look forward to again soon. Stay safe and see you soon!
