Wi-Fi During the NAfME National Conference

The 2022 NAfME National Conference and All-National Honor Ensembles are in-person events and will not be livestreamed or recorded. A basic wireless network will be available throughout the event space and in the guest rooms of those staying onsite at the Gaylord National, which will allow enough bandwidth for attendees to check email and access the event mobile app. Please note, per the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, the level of data available will not be sufficient to download presentation materials, stream video content, or livestream meetings via platforms such as Zoom. For session presenters, we ask that you download all session materials in advance, including videos from Vimeo or YouTube (etc.) and have them prepared on a thumb drive. NAfME is unable to provide greater wireless network capabilities in specific rooms for any duration of the event.
