NAMM U – Industry Education Designed with YOU in Mind

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

NS16_21_131545_2564_0From NAMM’s Director of Professional Development, Zach Phillips:

In the real world, where not everyone gets a trophy, only the smartest succeed. That’s why The 2018 NAMM Show is your path to success.

We’ve long dreamt of building a giant clubhouse for industry education. A hotspot where NAMM members could network, share, and, most of all, discover new ideas to grow their businesses and careers. A forum with a campus feel that served as an extension of The NAMM Show itself, featuring all the education a NAMM member could ever ask for, ranging from music retail to pro audio to event technology, and everything in between.
