2010 NAMM Show Opens in Anaheim
The NAMM Show, the longest-running trade show in the United States, opened on January 14, welcoming thousands of musical instrument and products retailers and manufacturers from around the world.
While the majority of industry professionals have been directly impacted by a down economy, many are ready to put the past behind them and move on to a new decade as they arrive to do important business at the annual trade show.
NAMM reports that consumer interest in music making is at an all-time high after conducting a 2009 “Attitudes Toward Music Making” Gallup poll.
