Here at The Music & Sound Retailer, and virtually everywhere else in the music products industry, January is the biggest, most hectic, most important month of the year. The reason, of course, is the NAMM show—North America’s largest music products trade show—which, this year, emanates from the Anaheim Convention Center from January 24 to 27.
The Music & Sound Retailer, as always, has NAMM covered from all angles, and we have an incredible menu of content to share with you this month. For starters, we’re offering a special Digital Edition of our January show issue. At 96 pages, it’s a super-sized edition of The Retailer, packed with hot new products and the latest news tidbits, pointers on what you should check out in Anaheim and analysis of the market during these tumultuous economic times. Haven’t received your January print copy in the mail yet? Read the Digital Edition now by clicking here.
We’re not just about print publishing, though. We also believe that people should see and hear their news! That’s why we produce ConventionTV@NAMM every year live on-site at the convention center in Anaheim. The program, which attendees see on the show floor, in convention hotel rooms and streaming online, gives viewers a comprehensive view of everything happening at NAMM, from rumors about mergers and acquisitions to an up-close look at product launches. With a fresh show each day, it’s the only on-site news source you need. Check out www.conventiontv.net during the show, where we’ll stream the latest broadcasts.
And finally, don’t forget about The Music & Sound Awards, now in their 27th year and still unrivaled as the leading awards program in the music products space. At the NAMM show, I’ll personally be handing out award hardware to winners in both the dealer and the manufacturer divisions. You’ll see highlights on ConventionTV@NAMM, and we’ll share all the details in the March edition of The Retailer, our annual Award Winners issue.
This will probably turn out to be your most important month of the year. Don’t miss the business intelligence that The Retailer puts at your fingertips.
