Guys I’m headed to NAMM in Anaheim, CA!!! This is my first year and I am so very excited to be attending. For those of you that may have never heard of it (from namm.org):
NAMM, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), commonly called NAMM in reference to the organization’s popular NAMM trade shows, is the not-for-profit association that unifies, leads and strengthens the $17 billion global music products industry. Our association—and our trade shows—serve as a hub for people wanting to seek out the newest innovations in musical products, recording technology, sound and lighting. NAMM’s activities and programs are designed to promote music making to people of all ages.
In the Winter and Summer every year, NAMM sponsors trade shows that allow all of the merchants and manufacturers to showcase their products. This results in every musical company that exists convening in one place to show off the goods!!! Nearly every person that is endorsed by these companies stops by and performs, showcases new products, takes pictures, signs autographs and just hang. It’s an incredible opportunity to hang and network with musicians from all over the world.
NAMM isn’t open to the public, so a manufacturer or merchant has to help you gain access. EBS Sweden, a company that graciously allows me to endorse their pedals, allowed me the opportunity to go to this year’s conference! I am very thankful and grateful for this opportunity.
I’ll have tons of pics and video in the coming days!!
