Unhappy I Wanna Go To Namm !!!

hi,
It's been only a little more than a year since i've come to US of A. I am sooo confused here coz everyone is talking about NAMM. i know it is THE place to be and one shud go here before he/she dies. I went to the website but cud not find the link to buy tickets.
*I see some people pointing fingers at me and laughing their ass off*

HOW CAN I ALSO GO TO NAMM ?!?!
What are the tickets pricing ?!?!?
When's the next NAMM?

Re: I Wanna Go To Namm !!!

NAMM isn't open to the public. There are a few ways to get passes though:

1) Work for a musical instrument reseller that is a member of NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants.)

2) Have a friend who fulfills #1.

3) Become a member of NAMM yourself. It's not cheap, but...oh well

4) Work for a musical instrument manufacturer or distributor that displays at NAMM.

5) Have a friend who fulfills #4.

6) Be an endorser/clinician with a musical instrument manufacturer that displays at the NAMM show.

7) Have a friend who fulfills #6.

Those are the best ways to get into a NAMM show. They've REALLY started to restrict public access in recent years which is as it should be. In the mid-late 90's it was more like a circus than a trade show. It's designed as an environment in which business can be conducted and it's getting to be a bit more conducive to that. Still...it's a helluva lot of fun!

LOL Sorry, but I've got plenty of friends lined up who'd love passes.

With pass limitations as they are, it's difficult enough to get my own badges

Re: I Wanna Go To Namm !!!

That's why I liked the Musikmesse in Frankfurt - it's open to the public, and I got to go every year when I lived there. Not as big or important as NAMM, but a lot of fun as well...
