The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show opened at the Anaheim Convention Center on Thursday. The four-day trade show is not open to the public and according to the Los Angeles Times, is expected to draw 102,000 NAMM members from over 120 different countries.
1,700 companies display their merchandise to owners, suppliers, employees, endorsed artists and guests of NAMM member companies. NAMM’s membership is comprised of companies that make, buy and/or sell musical instruments and products. Many new products get introduced at this huge show every year.
The opening night, Thursday, wrapped up with a concert on the main outdoor stage featuring recording artists from RSO Richie Sambora and Orianthi. Entertainment continues throughout the show both on the main stage as well as on small stages set up inside many vendor’s display booths.
NAMM also produces a second, smaller show every July in Nashville.
