Yes, [Summer NAMM] is smaller, but I felt I had more quality conversations, learned more at the education sessions and generally benefited more from the whole experience than I have done at most January NAMM shows. And it was simply more enjoyable. It is an effort to travel 15,000 kms from Australia to Nashville, but I will certainly be doing it again.

Education is a major reason why I come to these shows. The Idea Center is fantastic. I always tell myself, if I can walk away with one piece of knowledge to put into action in my business, then it's all worthwhile.
