The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show took place last month in Anaheim, CA with 115,085 registered industry professionals gathering to advance the industry forward over four days of the annual conference, according to the NAMM.org website.

7,000 brands and nearly 2,000 exhibiting companies were at the Anaheim Convention Center spread out across the two convention center buildings and multiple levels.

This was the largest NAMM Show yet with a 9% overall growth of exhibitors at the show. The layout of the exhibitors was different this year as show organizers had arranged the various categories of music displays into like groups. This made it much easier to navigate the show and to target specific areas of interest for the attendee. International attendees increased by 8% with representation from over 100 countries totaling 19,356 registrants.

The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is the not-for-profit association with a mission to strengthen the $17 billion music products industry. NAMM is comprised of approximately 10,300 members located in 104 countries and regions. NAMM events and members fund The NAMM Foundation’s efforts to promote the pleasures and benefits of music, and advance active participation in music making across the lifespan. For more information about NAMM, you can visit www.namm.org, call 800.767.NAMM (6266) or follow the organization on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
