Winter NAMM 2013, Anaheim, California, January 24-27, 2013

The Venue hosted at the Arena
Pro sound and lighting is a growing segment for the industry, which was reflected in the 2013 NAMM Show. Increasing numbers of front-of-house professionals from entertainment venues, houses of worship, theme parks, casinos and schools sent their operations managers, buyers, choir directors, sound engineers and technology directors to the NAMM Show.
The Venue (photo) hosted brands including SmithsonMartin, Mr. DJ, OmniSistem, Carvin Pro Sound, NSI Audio, Performance Truss and Soundstream Technologies. In this environment, with high ceilings and low overhead lights, lighting and staging brands can demonstrate technologies.
“NAMM is known for musical instruments and sound, but there is definitely a lot of interest in LED and other lighting products,” said Chris Giannoulas, president of OmniSistem, a Venue exhibitor that manufactures and markets visual effects ranging from lasers to truss systems.
Winter NAMM 2014 will take place January 23-26, 2014.
Products marked green below are nominees for the prestigious MIPA (Musikmesse International Press Award) whose winners were announced during Musikmesse 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany.
