Manufacturers, retailers, and other professionals in the music product, instrument, production, and audio industries are preparing for the NAMM Show’s return to the Anaheim Convention Center from Jan. 23-26, 2014.*Canadian Music Trade *publisher Norris-Whitney Communications will be exhibiting at booth 4609, where you can visit to receive complimentary copies of CMT and its sister publications (Canadian Musician, Professional Sound, and Professional Lighting & Production), see the latest titles from Music Books Plus, learn about NWC Marketing Services, and more.
NAMM is bringing back many of the successful features from last year’s show, including in-hotel badge pick-up, fewer ID checks, and increased opportunities for professional development, while adding more spots for networking and live entertainment on The Grand Plaza Stage. The NAMM Show’s open lobby will include a greater array of services and facilities for members, such as the Member Center, the NAMM Foundation kiosk, and a special exhibit from the Museum of Making Music.
The Grand Plaza Stage, located in the courtyard between the convention centre and the Hilton Hotel, will feature more live music, but also product demonstrations throughout the show and hands-on music making events, including ukulele and drum circles.
NAMM Show organizers say that the hotel lobby entertainment schedules are being designed to accommodate enterprising, business-friendly meetings that encourage camaraderie among the industry as the day turns to night.
