January’s NAMM – 2016

Posted on: Monday 18th of January 2016

January’s NAMM welcomed a record number of exhibitors and registrants to Anaheim in California.

‘As we look at the record number of exhibiting brands, influx of new entrepreneurial spirit and attendance from 125 countries, the industry seems poised for vital growth and breakthroughs,’ said NAMM president and CEO Joe Lamond. ‘The NAMM Show is a reflection of our industry, not only where it is now, but even more importantly where it is heading next. NAMM members brought their A-game to Anaheim this week with creative, innovative, beautiful products. They also came with inquisitive minds, filling NAMM’s educational sessions all four days.’

A record 1,726 exhibiting companies and more than 6,000 brands represented a 7% increase in exhibiting companies over 2015’s event. The number of new companies grew again, representing 409 of the total exhibiting companies while 174 companies returned after a lapse of a year or more.

With regard to attendees there were 101,736 NAMM Show registrants; a 2% increase over last year. A total of 15,915 registrants travelled to Anaheim from abroad, a 20% increase over 2015.

Summer NAMM returns to Nashville on 23-25 June and the NAMM Show returns to Anaheim, 19–22 January 2017. In 2018, the show will have room to grow into a new, modern wing of the Anaheim Convention Centre that is currently under construction.
