Two January trade shows – NAMM, the world’s premier music products/services show, and MacWorld, the annual gathering of the Macintosh faithful – will overlap more than a little, as Macs and music have been close partners since the first day of the first Macintosh computer. Here’s a preview of what you can expect at these high-energy trade shows.
Music is NAMM
The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is holding the 2011 NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center from January 13-16, 2011. In a nod to the environment and the growing “green convention” movement, NAMM has moved registration, schedules and program material to the cloud instead of including a printed supplement in PLAYback, its member magazine. Since the online format allows continuous updating, attendees are encouraged to check the program regularly.
“Music Education Days” (Saturday and Sunday, January 15-16,) feature panel discussions, hands-on training and educator workshops in the Anaheim Hilton’s “Learning Lounge.” You can lead your own breakout sessions with Audience Response System rentals and/or audiovisual rental from CRE, an official rental vendor. With attendance strictly limited to industry professionals, NAMM is where you can target just the right buyers, vendors or potential partners. From interactive kiosk rentals to pitch your product and capture attendee information, to dramatic NAMM plasma rentals that will make your exhibit space stand out, CRE will deliver the goods, set them up, get you going and retrieve the rentals when the trade show is done. CRE takes care of you, the whole way.
Mac is Macworld
Macworld 2011 is coming back to San Francisco’s Moscone Center once again, from January 26-29. All the latest software, hardware and accessories for Apple’s various product lines – Macs, iPods, iPad, AppleTV, etc. – can be viewed, reviewed and test-driven.
If you are exhibiting and need a dozen iPad rental for polling potential clients or need HD plasma rentals to showcase a product demo, CRE gives you a potent trade show presence. With Macworld offering access to the major players behind Apple-related products and services, it’s where you want to be to stay on the leading edge – while cultivating contacts, making presentations and sealing a few (or many!) deals.
