As we move past the half way mark for the year 2017, there is already a lot to savor for the months gone by. Summer NAMM 2017 enjoyed a successful wrap up and infused a myriad of greatness into Music City USA, once again.

Summer NAMM took center stage in Nashville again and packed the Music City Center Convention Center. NAMM is an invaluable resource and credit to the music industry as a whole. The city known to the world as Music City USA, lived up to the expectations of vendors, conference attendees, media and entertainment industry professionals.

The trade convention style platform covers a myriad of information over the 3 ½ day period. It’s fun, upbeat and the vendors are experienced, well rounded in their product and services line. Many popular, local and national bands and musicians will play at various times throughout the event.

NAMM U is one of the best draws of the summer show, providing key and inside tip information through their course in: Sales, Marketing, Management, Finance and Industry Lessons. It’s suggested that attendee’s take in at least one of the power packed music industry sessions.

To venture deeper into “all things NAMM” take some time out to become familiar with the carefully tailored NAMM Foundation. It’s truly been a catalyst to support the younger crowd via academics and a staunch tie in to the music industry.
