Fun during the show maybe

-Why go to NAMM?
On a serious note, I have friends who have scored endorsement and beta tester deals at NAMM. I've reconnected with former clients there, resulting in extra work. I love the opportunity to watch new product demos and question developers face to face. NAMM Shows are a chance to get a jump on the competition and a chance to plan my gear budget ahead of release dates.
On a personal level, I have friends who have moved far away who I never get to see outside of their yearly trek to Anaheim. In recent years, I've also found the opportunity to meet and reconnect with forum members at NAMM.
Each NAMM Show is a valuable experience for me in many ways.
