The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) has released the list of 2013’s Top 100 Dealers. The top music instrument, product, and sound retailers from around the world will be recognized at a gala at Summer NAMM in Nashville, Tenn., on July 12. This year’s Top 100 Dealers list includes two Canadian companies; Bluedog Guitars in North Vancouver and Wentworth House of Music Ltd., which has two stores in Kelowna and Vernon, BC.
Music product retailers were judged according to predetermined criteria by a panel of impartial expert judges, selected by but not otherwise affiliated with NAMM. During the award show in Nashville, excellence in seven divisions including Dealer of the Year will be recognized in front of a crowd of industry leaders and peers.
