The music begins at The NAMM Show—and for that reason, it attracts the world’s most powerful buyers. In 2016, the estimated purchasing power of registered global buying companies totaled in excess of $10.7 billion—with 87 percent of The Music Trades national Top 200 Music Stores list present. With added benefits of valuable educational sessions and networking opportunities, the show is attended by high-quality buyers specifically looking to check out your products, innovations and technology. And they represent a range of retail segments and music-related industries, including:
With areas like the Venue and its focus on lighting, touring and sound solutions, Music Metro’s platform for electric, acoustic and innovative products, Lounge 88’s piano showcase in a gallery setting and the main halls with neighborhoods of every type of instrument, gear and accessory imaginable, there’s something for everyone at The NAMM Show.
