AIMM Summer Summit to Coincide With Summer NAMM

As an industry, we are better together, and Summer NAMM will embody this spirit with a series of activities creating a market week designed to help attendees accomplish multiple goals in one location, save time, resources and begin to power our recovery.

AIMM (The Alliance of Independent Music Merchants) is pleased to announce the return of an in-person AIMM Summer Summit in Nashville on Wednesday, July 14th, 2021!

“We are excited to once again be offering our members the opportunity to safely gather in Nashville, sharing best practices and thought leadership experiences together at the AIMM Summit”, stated AIMM Cofounder George Hines of George’s Music.

Cofounder Skip Maggiora of Skip’s Music shared “The AIMM organization is always supportive of NAMM, so joining them and NASMD in a week of education, music products and industry camaraderie is something we are really looking forward to.”

Cofounder Bob Bankston added, “AIMM works strategically with our partners on developing unique product offerings. Being together in Nashville during this Music Industry week is the perfect opportunity to continue collaborating on these initiatives. I’m also looking forward to seeing everyone in the AIMM group and many industry friends, it’s been too long.”

Details on the Summit sessions and agenda will be sent to AIMM members in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

This exciting event is part of a suite of weeklong activities, including the co-location of NASMD’s annual convention featuring an opening reception on Monday, July 12, and a full-day convention on Tuesday, July 13.

Members will be able to participate in the AIMM Summer Summit on Wednesday, July 14, and be ready to work a reimagined Summer NAMM, with two business-focused show days, Thursday, July 15 and Friday, July 16.

Both show days will feature extended hours (9 am – 6 pm Thursday and 9 am – 5 pm Friday), offering attendees the opportunity to focus on rekindling relationships, reviewing new products and learning best practices to set up a successful second half of the year.

With a show close Friday afternoon, the industry can return to their businesses or enjoy a Nashville weekend.

NAMM members will have the opportunity to register and book hotels starting April 28, and general attendees will be able to do so on May 12.
