NAMM 2016, the century-old consumer music trade show, returned to Anaheim, California triggering the annual pilgrimage of musicians from all walks of life eager to see the latest the music industry has to offer.
Billed as “the worldâ€™s largest trade-only event for the music products industry,” the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show returned to the Anaheim Convention Center. The annual tradeshow, founded in 1901, was held from January 21 to 24 and featured the newest models of every instrument imaginable, as well as the latest technology in playing and recording music.
Over 90,000 people filled to the convention center to check out the latest guitars, drums, and keyboards. Some of their peers and heroes were on hand to give demonstrations, sign autographs, and talk about the music making and recording industry.
