Summer NAMM brings together more than 400 musical instruments and products with buyers from around the world in a vibrant trade show environment. The show is not only an opportunity to see the latest innovations and hottest gear in music, but also live entertainment, instrument demos, workshops for musicians and chances for hands-on music making.
