Special Events at Summer NAMM

Summer NAMM will again connect our industry. With special events planned before and during the show, Nashville will host a variety of communities, allowing attendees to save money and accomplish multiple goals in one, exciting location.

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. AIMM members will be able to participate in the AIMM Summer Summit on Wednesday, July 14.

The ever-popular Top 100 Dealer Awards will honor our retail leaders 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.

This year's celebration, along with the announcement of "Best of" and "Dealer of the Year" awards, will be held at Summer NAMM in Nashville on Thursday, July 15. "Best of" award categories include "Best Community Retail Store," "Best Customer Service," "Best Store Design," "Best Marketing and Sales Promotion," "Best Online Engagement," "Innovation Award" and the "Music Makes a Difference Award." All submissions will be evaluated for effectiveness in marketing, customer engagement, and innovation in retail by a panel of independent judges. From the finalists of these categories, one store will be recognized with the coveted "Dealer of the Year" Award. Learn more and enter the Top 100 Awards here.
