Anyone who knows anything about music and guitars knows that the NAMM show is THE definitive platform for music, sound, and event-tech communities to unite over their passions.
With just under a month left until the show, we’re getting pretty excited.
The 2018 NAMM show will be returning to its newly expanded home at the Anaheim Convention Center from January 25th - 28th. The Convention Center has grown to include more levels of exhibition space and a beautiful balcony that overlooks Katella Avenue and Disneyland.
The event will kick off with the “Breakfast of Champions” hosted by NAMM President and CEO, Joe Lamond, where he’ll share the importance of taking risks in the music industry, and what’s worked for him and what hasn’t - a must watch for exhibitors and manufacturers.
After that, the next three days will be jam-packed with press events, product demos, forums, musical demonstrations, business lectures, audio-science seminars, concerts, and more.
There will be five stages showcasing live music throughout the event:
★ Grand Plaza: All day, with nightly headliners
★ Arena Plaza: All day
★ Marriott: All day
★ Hilton: All day
★ Sheraton: All day
The artists performing at NAMM this year include:
