May 30, 2019

CARLSBAD, Calif. – May 30, 2019 – The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is pleased to announce the list of enterprising music product retailers to be honored at the organization’s Top 100 Dealer Awards. Now in its ninth year and held during the Summer NAMM Show(July 18-20) in Nashville, the annual awards honor retailers who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their stores, neighborhoods, and customers, and share in a vision of creating a more musical world through their local communities.

“NAMM retail members are at the forefront of creating more music makers and in my opinion, are the heartbeat of our industry in communities around the world,” said Joe Lamond, NAMM President and CEO. “We look forward to an exciting evening in Nashville to honor and celebrate the Top 100 Dealers and to learn the secrets of how they are adapting to the changing retail environment and succeeding in the marketplace.”

Each Top 100 Dealer submission was evaluated for effectiveness in marketing, customer engagement and innovation in retail by a panel of independent judges. The panel has also made a selection for several “Best of” category winners, including two new categories: the “Innovation Award” and “Best Community Retail Store.” The event’s new “Top 100 Customers’ Choice Award” encourages fans and customers of the nominated store to vote online at: TopDealer.NAMM.Org. Other categories include “Best Customer Service;” “Best Store Design;” “Best Marketing and Sales Promotion;” “Best Online Engagement;” and the “Music Makes a Difference Award.” From the winners of these categories, one store will be recognized with the coveted “Dealer of the Year” Award.

The Top 100 Awards will be held on Friday, July 19 inside Music City Center’s Davidson Ballroom starting at 6:00 p.m. Country Music Television’s on-air personality Katie Cook will host the awards.
