We’re quite fortunate to have had Leila Brown, a well-respected emergency preparedness and business continuity specialist, contribute a piece to our upcoming issue of Canadian Music Trade. Leila helps companies be resilient through disasters and discusses some of the measures that should be taken to prepare for “worse” going to “worst.”

The article, titled “Being Prepared Is Everyone’s Business” and featured in our Business Matters section, will be part of CMT’s Dec/Jan 2014 issue and we invite you to have a look and be in touch with Leila with any questions.

Knock on wood this isn’t something any of us will have to see through…

However, NAMM staff has told CMT that registration is slightly up over last year, with 118 exhibitors returning this year who were not at the show in 2012.
