Global Reach

Gain exposure and build your brand across diverse media channels

Summer NAMM exhibitors were able to build brand awareness to leading trade press, and a global base of media such as Billboard, Bloomberg and Gizmag, along with local outlets focused on the diverse Nashville recording and music scene such as Music Row, Taste of Country, and Nashville Business Journal.

Exhibitors were able to generate buzz across social media channels helping to spread brand and sales messages to millions of followers.

Increased engagement with Instagram helped reach a new base of Summer NAMM followers, while thousands of "snaps" on Snapchat made Summer NAMM a highlight of the week. 

Summer NAMM was also a platform for brands to generate their own content, with opportunities for showcasing products and garnering feedback and support from sales partners, retail customers, artists and influencers.
