The pandemic interrupted Making Vinyl’s continued growth since 2017 as the only B2B conference dedicated to all aspects of record manufacturing.

Our Nashville event promises to provide the latest information on how the vinyl industry continues to pump our record-setting volumes, amid consumer demand, considerable supply chain issues related to raw materials shortages, as well as increased prices.

Making Vinyl Nashville conference will be held at a new pressing plant, The Vinyl Lab and plating facility/demos tours of Welcome to 1979, the renown vinyl mastering and plating facility, will be offered. 

Incidentally, The Vinyl Lab is one of three new plants coming online or already operating in Nashville, joining the long-established United Record Pressing, further indicating the bullish view market forces have for vinyl’s future.
