  Maximum Audio

Innovations in recording, live sound, installation, A/V, broadcast and post-production, along with consumer electronics, software, DJ and emerging technology such as virtual reality are revealed across the NAMM Campus.


For the second year, the Audio Engineering Society will continue the AES@NAMM Pro Sound Symposium: Live & Studio, an exciting new collaboration with high-end demonstrations and professional training.

  TEC Awards

The NAMM Show wouldn’t be complete without the prestigious TEC Awards, which honors excellence and creativity in pro audio and sound production, along with artists that bring the music to life.

  Career Development Opportunities

Visitors will have access to every level of industry education, from core classes at TEC Tracks to AES white paper discussions and dedicated certification classes. Audinate Dante™ training and certification will also be available.

  The Ideal Place and Time

The NAMM Show takes place on the doorstep of the powerful Los Angeles touring community and right in the tour sweet spot of January, when tours take a break and training opportunities are welcomed. And who doesn’t enjoy the California sun?

Connect with Leading Pro Audio and Live Sound Providers

For years I’ve wanted something like this to happen. The expansion into pro audio and technology is so important because it’s a much different market than the MI/retail traditionally seen at NAMM. But here at the show, it brings us all together.
