The NAMM Show is one of the ultimate musical indulgences this world has to offer. Each year the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) puts on two NAMM trade shows – a Summer event in Nashville and a winter event in Anaheim. The winter NAMM Show takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center in late January in sunny Anaheim, CA. The NAMM association is a not-for-profit association that “promotes the pleasures and benefits of making music and strengthens the $17 billion global music product industry.” These NAMM shows are ideal for individuals looking to learn more about the newest innovations and products, technologies, sound/lighting systems, and essentially anything else music production related. The exhibition halls provide a platform for members to experience a wide array of products, gear, and accessories for every kind of buyer and decision-maker The NAMM Show draws buyers from a variety of companies and media outlets from around the world. This presents attendees with the opportunity to build a diverse network of contacts, including: attendees from over 100 countries and territories, decision-makers from a range of global companies and venues, and industry media as well as reporters from global newspapers, TV and radio outlets.
