Vegas-Sign_2018_notext.pngWe're proud of the companies and organizations that have sponsored the 55th NATS National Conference. With more than 900 attendees and the largest number of sessions and concerts ever offered at a NATS national event, their generous support is what made the 55th National Conference possible.

The generous support of our sponsors helps to support the ssential work at our conferences. Without their participation, NATS could not present the excellent program of master classes, performances, student competitions, and other learning opportunities available.

With sincere appreciation, we recognize the following companies, organizations, and schools that have partnered with NATS toward a successful 55th National Conference. VIEW SPONSORS
