“Having the Parnelli Awards and Pro Production at NAMM is a great idea. I have been going to NAMM for years and I always get a ton of business done there. Now, I will be able to get even more done.”
Dave Shadoan, president, Sound Image
“This exciting change of venue for the Parnelli Awards Dinner is a winner for the touring industry. NAMM will become the forum that pro lighting, staging and audio companies have needed. It will put artists, managers, company owners and tour professionals under one roof in the perfect location – Southern California in the winter. “
Marshall Bissett, Chairman, Parnelli Advisory Board
With the connectivity of NAMM, and other industry related events in Southern California near the same time, I think this move, and new relationship, will be very beneficial to everyone in our industry who attends. "I’m very excited about the Parnelli Awards moving to NAMM.”
Mark Haney, Video Director
The marriage of the Parnelli Awards and NAAM is a natural fit. It is a supply side meets demand side move. Artists, managers, manufacturers and live show professionals all in one place, what a concept!
