Like many other events, the annual NAMM show in California was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
I have been attending the winter NAMM show every year since 2004. Like the many thousands who attend the show, I am missing it terribly. Yes I enjoy looking at the instruments and equipment. However for me, NAMM is about people – seeing old friends, meeting business associates and making ones (business associates and friends alike). Indeed, many of these friends only get to see each other in person at the show.
Why I attend the NAMM Show
Looking to 2022
I have many memories associated with NAMM. Each year I leave the show feeling as though “this was the best yet!” 2020 was particularly special: both of my sons were with me, MLC launched its new brand identity and all of us who travelled together had a fantastic time and gained a lot from the experience. The biggest realisation is not to take either the show or attendance of it for granted. Who could have imagined that we wouldn’t all be together this week. Here’s to 2022! I hope to see you there. If you see me – come and say hi!
