NomadiCon is focused on providing our attendees the best possible experience unlike any other they’ve had before. Being a new event, it takes quite a bit of planning and problem-solving to get something like this not only greenlit, but off the ground and running.
A few days ago the board was notified that the Grand Hyatt Nashville has undergone a business strategy shift, and ultimately couldn’t comfortably fulfill their end of the agreement. We’ve been working non-stop since this to formulate a plan.
NomadiCon is moving venues, and will not be hosted at the Grand Hyatt.
We do not have issue with the Grand Hyatt, and they have been respectful and helpful in this process to help us relocate and ensure the best for both parties. Do not harass them. Right now, we are working together to secure another venue within Nashville that has comparable venue size and amenities. Ultimately we will have to give up some of our perks as the GHN is one of the most luxurious hotels in the area.
On top of that – being so close to the event – we don’t feel comfortable scrambling to find a new venue in less than 4 weeks. It’s not fair to our staff, and it’s not fair to our attendees.
NomadiCon will be re-scheduling to a future date.
We don’t have all the answers right now, of which i’m sure you’re wondering. We are working to get those out – hopefully soon – but we wanted to inform everybody of the situation sooner rather than later. Transparency is a huge guiding principle for our organization, and we want to keep it that way.
Where will it be then? And when??
Today, we have a few locations in Nashville Metro we are in contact with alongside the Grand Hyatt. Once we have something in writing, we will announce it! We plan to have this settled in the next few weeks.
Along with that, while we have some time-frames we know we want to hold the event, we can’t announce dates without first finding a venue with availability. These announcements will come at the same time.
Is NomadiCon still happening?
Absolutely. We have every intention to bring this event to you, and are working tirelessly to make that happen. You can’t get rid of us that easily!
While this is an unfortunate situation at it’s face, this does bring some good possibilities to the event. Many potential attendees has worries about the nightly hotel rate, had concerns about parking, or other concerns related to the specific venue we were hosted by. This gives us an opportunity to combat those concerns head-on. That means more fuzzy folks able to attend a fantastic event to make your weekend awesome.
What does this mean for me?
If you made a hotel reservation, it will be cancelled over the coming days. You should receive a confirmation email reflecting this change. If you booked out of block, you will need to cancel yourself.
If you’re an attendee or vendor, your registration will automatically be rolled over to the next event. You don’t need to do anything.
I don't want to go anymore. Can I get a refund?
In lieu of this situation, we understand it can come with uncertainty in wanting to attend. We are fully committed to ensuring our attendees are covered.
If you’ve already paid for a badge / vendor table, we are offering full refunds (minus a small card processing fee) to those who want it. You may also roll over your purchase to a following year, if you can’t make it to the rescheduled event. We ask that if you still plan on attending that you don’t request a refund, because it complicates the registration process (and you’ll lose a few dollars to the processing fee)
To request a refund, send an email to [email protected] with your information.
If you have any questions we didn’t answer here, email [email protected] and we will answer them as best we can.
