The music product industry recently converged in Nashville to celebrate the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Summer show. Held July 11-13, the event boasted 422 exhibiting companies representing more than 1150 brands (a 12 percent increase over the previous year). The conference included 157 first-time exhibiting companies and many returning brands.
The conference offered plentiful opportunities for musical showcases, exhibits and educational seminars. Professional development included the Retail Boot Camp, the Retail Summit and the Idea Center sessions. “Insight,” hosted by Vince Gill and Tom Bedell on the first night of the show, brought together the music industry’s iconic names for a panel covering everything from lessons learned during their careers, to what the leaders would do if they were king for a day, and their first concert.
Honoring NAMM’s Top 100 Retailers has become one of the most-anticipated facets of NAMM’s summer show. Beacock Music Company was honored as the Dealer of the Year during an awards event July 12.
