The NAMM Show 2017 is Off to a Great Start!

The annual NAMM Show is a really big event. We will see what the numbers look like for this year soon enough, but it’s safe to say there are ten’s of thousands of people, a completely packed Anaheim Convention Center, full parking lots, full hotels, amazing events, great news products, celebrity sightings and more. But the bottom line is there is where the deals happen. This is where new product are unveiled, deals are struck and lifetime bonds are made. We have been fortunate to be a small part of this incredible effort for the past few years and it simply never ceases to impress.

 

This week and the weeks following will have us bringing you images, product news, review and hopefully more! Clark was on the floor today and I’m sure we’ll see some things popping up soon. With some luck we will be able to give you a sense of what it’s like to be here!  In the meantime, we wanted to get you a few pics from the day. These are all from the fabulous photographers from Getty, specifically Jesse Grant.

So what are they talking about on the floor? Here’s a couple quotes;

“NAMM is not for us, it’s for them, the people we get to speak to face to face. Everyone is here because of a common connection on how to express ourselves. It is about having some sort of tool or process to express yourself.” – Jim Debardi, Moog

“The reason we always coming back to NAMM is we get to see so many people that are interested in our products, meet new dealers, and find opportunities to sell our guitars in new markets.” – Ben Parker, Marketing and Brand Manager, Teton Guitars
