While not The NAMM Show or a virtual tradeshow, the initiative will meet the immediate business needs of NAMM member companies through thought-leader led education for all segments of the industry, networking and AI matchmaking, and business-to-business-focused opportunities to reaffirm and grow business connections, launch new products, share brand initiatives and engage with customers in real-time.
"While it remains unsafe for us to gather in person in January, Believe in Music Week will use new, intuitive technology to connect us all to harness the incredible energy that happens when we come together. With a robust marketplace to launch new products and share brand stories, Believe in Music Week will also feature networking and matchmaking for our buyers and our sellers, education for all segments of the industry, and live music and concerts to engage music makers across the world." - Joe Lamond, NAMM President and CEO
