“As always, it is super enjoyable to see all the new products. I get the chance to talk to the different manufacturers in the different areas of the industry. I think what is really important about NAMM, having attended over the years, is that you get to see the trends, where things are heading. Those become more clear as you spend a few days on the show floor, you begin to get a sense of exactly what’s popular, what is a new technology that is being integrated and so on, from different products.”
