More Attendees and More Exhibitors at NAMM reports:
Carlsbad, CA, January 17, 2011—The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) today announced the final registration and exhibitor numbers for the 2011 NAMM Show, the largest and longest-running musical instruments and products trade show in the United States.
At show close, NAMM reported 90,114 registered attendees, a three percent increase from last year and representing a new attendance record for the 109-year-old show. International registration also experienced a two percent increase from last year to 10,400. Another sign of economic recovery in the industry, the association reported 1,417 exhibitors at this year’s show, including 247 new exhibitors.

I would love to ask the exhibitors what it was like to exhibit at a show that had an increase in attendance over last year. Did they market to capture the new attendees walking the show?  Did they change their booth to reflect new products or services? An extra 247 exhibitors exhibited for the first time at the NAMM show in 2011. With more competition, did the exhibitors step up their game and focus on prospects and customers?

You won’t believe what I saw….

All of this week I will be posting NAMM reports- check back.
