Professional development and business enrichment opportunities will take centre stage at Summer NAMM, July 13–15. Members who join the mid-year gathering at Nashville’s Music City Center will have the opportunity to participate in more than 60: ‘high-impact, future-focused educational sessions. Each day of Summer NAMM will feature a different series of topics covering the biggest ideas and game-changing tactics to enrich attendees’ businesses and professional development, and to help prepare them for the future,’ NAMM says.
Before the show officially opens on Wednesday, July 12, members can enjoy an all-day intensive training at Retail Boot Camp. The sessions will feature best-in-class experts in two different tracks: Sales and Marketing, and Financial Management. In Sales and Marketing, internationally recognised business expert Jon Schallert will show participants how to turn a music store into a consumer destination for your community – and abroad. In the Financial Management track, Alan Friedman and Daniel Jobe of Friedman, Kannenberg & Co. return to cover such topics as purchasing and managing inventory, employee compensation, financial statements, instrument rentals and more. Registration is now open and free to NAMM members.
