After kicking off their year at The NAMM Show, many NAMM buyers like to keep the momentum going by attending Summer NAMM in Nashville, the industry’s midyear gathering. The summer show’s slower pace not only lends itself to a more in-depth buying experience, but also fosters relationship-building as buyers are able to spend more time with their suppliers and industry peers. 

“I couldn’t imagine not coming to this show,” said Chuck Surack of Sweetwater Sound. “We have at least 20 people here: buyers, sales management, marketing—including people creating web content. I love Nashville. At this show, I spend quality time with products and vendors, really getting to talk with people, friends.”

Some buyers come to Summer NAMM because they prefer its more relaxed pace, ideal for face-to-face meetings and networking. They also know the show is a renowned launching ground for many companies new to the industry offering unique products that can set your company apart from the competition.

“I come here because I’m hoping to find that next guy, that next Gibson, that next Fender, that next JBL or Electrovoice––somebody who’s got a 10x10 booth but with a great idea,” said Sammy Ash of Sam Ash Music. “I always want to find that little niche guy who may one day be something, and I’ll be able to say, ‘I found him.’”

Anyone who’s been to Summer NAMM since it moved into Nashville’s magnificent Music City Center will tell you that the show’s got a great new vibe—and a unique set of business benefits that include:

• Tons of great gear! From small and unique exhibitors debuting their products for the first time to larger, more established brands, as well as a rapidly growing pro audio presence

• Free professional education, from the intensive pre-show Retail Boot Camp and standing-room-only Breakfast Sessions, to its short, focused Idea Center sessions and unique pro audio-focused TEC Tracks

• Live musical performances throughout the day, plus lively NAMM at Night events, including the annual NAMM at Night Opening Party and Top 100 Dealer Awards, where best practices are shared and the industry’s most proactive retailers are acknowledged for their leadership
