Anaheim, CA (August 14, 2017)—The annual Winter NAMM Show draws more than 100,000 attendees from around the world to the Anaheim Convention Center, all focused on seeing the latest and greatest in MI, pro audio and event technology. Next January’s edition will see some radical shifts for the Show, as many pro audio exhibitors will move into a new building, Anaheim Convention Center North, which will make its NAMM debut. A newly released convention map outlines the changes.
Pro Audio for isn’t the only market that will be relocated, as the map reveals that the show has moved many product communities into new spaces across the convention center. Pro Audio will continue to have a presence in Hall A as it has for years, but that will lead into the new building, where the show’s focus will be on Pro Audio/MI Technology and Distributors.
Hall A overall will offer Pro Audio, DJ/Pro Audio, Pro Audio and Technology, and Event Technology, a new area of the show intended to showcase lighting, rigging, DJ, sound, special effects and staging products and services.
NAMM’s educational programs, previously held on higher floors of the Convention Center, will be relocated to the Hilton Anaheim, where they will cover four floors, covering a variety of disciplines. Part of that effort will include the Audio Engineering Society’s new format: AES@NAMM Prosound Symposium: Live and Studio. Also of note to the pro audio industry will be the annual TEC Awards on Saturday, January 27.
