the industry meets here

Network with an international gathering of thought leaders from every segment of the industry

It's always been a good experience to come and meet different people and companies. It's about meeting other suppliers, contacts, building relationships and continuing relationships. It's basically about meeting people in person—I think that's the biggest thing about NAMM. I've been coming here for the past 11 years now and I've seen the whole transition, it's been getting bigger and bigger every year.

The important thing for The NAMM Show is to establish new relationships obviously, but to also maintain existing contacts and relationships, find out what the latest trends are and to generally stay abreast of the industry—it’s a very quick-changing industry. This is the place, the environment made especially for that. I think anything that continually gets the industry together has got to be a positive thing.
