The NAMM show took place in Anaheim, CA from Jan. 24-27. With over 115,000 attendees, this trade show remains the largest in North America devoted to the music business, and rivals Prolight+Sound/Musikmesse in Frankfurt for global bragging rights. We stopped in at the booths of dozens of PLSN’s friends to say “Hi,” talk shop and grab a photo op. Along with the exhibits inside the Convention Center and the bands playing outside, the Parnelli Awards were a big hit at the Anaheim Hilton next to the Convention Center, as were the Pro Production educational series. Here’s a look at what some of the live event-oriented companies were offering at NAMM 2019. It’s not exactly like being there yourself, searching out each exhibitor among 2,200 other companies hawking everything from guitars to tubas. But at least you won’t need a foot-massage after checking them all out.
