NAMIC Annual Convention
Sep 20 - 23, 2020 | Boston, Mass.
NAMIC is following coronavirus updates to address the safety and well-being of its event attendees. This includes actively monitoring the most authoritative and responsible sources, such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization, and other reputable sources. NAMIC is committed to continuing awareness and communication of current information from reliable sources in addressing developments related to events and travel related to the virus.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended cancelling all events consisting of 50 or more people for eight weeks, so we will not be hosting any NAMIC event scheduled March through May.

All registrants will be contacted regarding options for refund and/or registration credits. Sponsors will be contacted by the sponsorship development team.
While it is unclear how long company travel restrictions will last, social distancing will be practiced, and other effects on event attendance will continue in response to this outbreak, our hope is to be able to provide you with the opportunity to gather together again later this year when it’s safer to do so.
We are closely monitoring developments in COVID-19 for NAMIC events offered June through October.
Our goal is to provide you with regular updates on event status and provide ample notice to adjust travel plans. We will provide an additional status update on the first and 15th of each month with updates also available on NAMIC.org.
Please refer to event registration confirmations and event registration pages for our cancellation policy if you decide for personal reasons to cancel attendance at any NAMIC event. If you are not able to join us, you will be able to access all presentations virtually. We appreciate your understanding.
Occasionally, groups claiming to be a “Convention Housing Bureau” or a similar name have contacted registered and/or regular attendees of the NAMIC Annual Convention claiming the ability to secure room reservations at a discounted rate at the official NAMIC hotel in September. Please be aware that these companies are not authorized to represent NAMIC and cannot secure rooms within the group room block. Unfortunately, this problem is becoming more prevalent among convention groups. If you are considering alternative housing arrangements for the NAMIC Annual Convention, please keep in mind that there are benefits to booking your reservation through NAMIC, including discounted rates, protected reservations, and the ability for NAMIC staff to assist you with a reservation should you experience a problem. Please alert NAMIC should you be contacted directly by a company about making room reservations for the convention.
