HOBNOB MISSISSIPPI

Hobnob 2020: Virtual "Banter at the Ballpark"
Live from Trustmark Park!

MEC's virtual Hobnob Mississippi 2020 "Banter at the Ballpark" will be held on October 29 from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.!

Hobnob will look a bit different this year - in more ways than one.

Safety Measures

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the difficult decision was made to move Hobnob Mississippi to an online format to keep MEC members and attendees safe.

We'll Take You Out to the Ball Game

Our changes won’t just include the virtual format. Our “Banter at the Ballpark” live stream will be broadcast from Trustmark Park, home of the Mississippi Braves!

Experience Hobnob YOUR Way

This virtual experience will be fun and informative, and will keep the Hobnob spirit alive - even while you're away! We'll have live music, giveaways, special appearances, and more.

Watch our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages for more excitement leading up to Hobnob 2020.

We look forward to seeing you online on October 29!
