NAMM is upon us again and we’re heading out to California next week to take it all in and hopefully do a little business while we are there.
The winter NAMM show is described by the organisers as ‘the world’s largest trade-only event for the music products, pro audio and event tech industry’. During a time of great change in the industry, when the MI sector has faced many recent challenges, the NAMM Show continues to grow and innovate with an introduction of more content, technology, training and other offerings for the Pro-Audio, Live Events and Commercial AV markets which take up the new North Hall.
Taking place at the recently re-developed and expanded Anaheim Convention Centre, the event sees the world’s biggest (and smallest) developers and manufacturers gathering to show off the latest products for musicians, DJs, studio and live events professionals. With more than 115,000 registrants from 139 countries and regions commanding $11+ billion in buying power, attendees are sure to be spoiled for choice.
There will once again be a heavy focus on music education – beginning with the annual NAMM Day of Ser
