Where Music Begins: The NAMM Show, January 21-24
The Music Abode is a proud member of NAMM and we have selected a few of our amazing instructors to attend the international music convention this year: Sean Carroll, Mark Hood, Vivian Lawrence, Jenny Payne, Sarah Vallery, and myself Kim Gardner.
If your instructor is listed above, they will have tons of new information about musicians, instruments, music books, accessories, and what’s new in the music industry. Make sure to pick their brain after the convention!
Attending the NAMM Show opens doors to 5,000 music product brands, a global buying audience, special events, dozens of educational sessions, and endless live music.
“This year’s annual gathering of music and sound industry professionals is laser focused on helping our members increase their competitive advantage and be more successful in 2016,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “The NAMM Show has become a crossroads of the global music industry. There is no better place than NAMM to see all the exciting new products, meet and hear from industry leaders who are shaping music’s future, attend the best training sessions offered anywhere, and at the same time experience some of the most fun and productive music and networking events of the whole year.”
TEC Tracks, which debuted at Summer NAMM 2015, replaces The H.O.T Zone on the second floor of the convention center. TEC Tracks will feature master classes, live interviews and panel discussions on the most relevant topics for recording, live sound, DJ, lighting, music business and entertainment technology professionals.
NAMM has teamed up with the International Music Software Trade Association (IMSTA), a nonprofit association, which represents the interests of the music software industry, to integrate a community of music software providers into the 2016 NAMM Show. Software.NAMM, The Music Software Community, presented by NAMM and IMSTA will stage adjacent to the TEC Tracks education area on the convention center’s second floor. In addition to the new software area, there will be international pavilions featuring exhibitors from Argentina, Brazil, China, Germany, South Korea, Spain and the United Kingdom with more to come.
