The NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show brings together the world’s most influential buyers to release the latest in music products, pro-audio, sound, lighting, and entertainment technology. Buyers gather from over 125 countries and regions, making up a staggering 15% of the audience who travel to Anaheim from outside of the United States. The NAMM Show is a true global affair.
This year’s event will be from Thursday, January 19th to Sunday, January 22nd in Anaheim. The show is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., in exception for the final day on Sunday, where the show closes at 5 p.m.
“Musician? Songwriter? Producer? Gear junkie? DJ? This is THE place where you will feel like a kid in a candy store,” shared Yelp user, John K., in his 2015 review of the NAMM Show. “Want to meet the creators of your favorite equipment and ask questions that will get answered in depth and correctly unlike misleading forum sites? NAMM is the place. Tons of gear and instruments were out on display for trial from all the well-known companies in the world to the smaller boutique. Since this was my first time attending NAMM I went two of the three days and spent a full day each time running around asking questions, networking, going to a seminar, and ‘oooohhhhhdd’ when Stevie Wonder walked in front of me.”
