NAMM Music Trade Show CANCELLED | January 2021 | 1st Time Ever!

NAMM Show 2021 - Canceled!

NAMM Show January 2021 is Cancelled due to Covid 19! 1st Time Ever!


For the 1st time ever and due to Covid 19 restrictions and limitations, the National Association of Musical Merchants will not be meeting at the Anaheim Convention Center for their 4 day January 2021 Private Music Trade Show Convention. Thousands upon thousands of music industry people go to this musical instrument trade show from all over the world and nearly every musical instrument manufacturer displays their latest and greatest products there in the massive Anaheim Convention Center and Arena. But unfortunately the upcoming January 2021 show is canceled and I am personally sad in that I have gone to this big show every year for well over 30 years, and for me I love to see and hear all these exciting musical instruments and talk to old friends who are there

NAMM Show 2021 - Canceled!

The NAMM show is the place where the music dealers, musicians, and related music companies, manufacturers, suppliers, and services meet together to see the latest creations coming into the music products and services industry. Although this is a private show not open to the public, the industry people who attend can have a "hands on" experience with all of those exciting things and talk with each other in person to share ideas and find out what they need to further their business, make sales, and hear some great music. Millions of dollars will be lost because of the NAMM cancellation for local hotels, restaurants, Disneyland which is nearby, Airline travel, staff who would have been employed there, and all the money that changes hands inside this private trade show for products and services.

Names like Yamaha, Fender, Gibson, Yamaha, Roland, Casio, Taylor, Korg, Marshall, and the thousands of products including percussion, woodwinds, brass, strings, pianos, guitars, keyboards, audio equipment, computer music software, accessories, and so much more. Whatever you can think of and wherever in the world it is made, those people and companies would have been there. It's a great shock to have this huge show canceled and not have a chance to visit with music industry friends or have the chance to try all these products in person all in one huge place.

Hopefully the summer 2021 NAMM trade show in Nashville, Tennessee will still be on when the time comes in July 2021. Although that trade show is much smaller in size and depth of product, perhaps it will grow on account of the January NAMM international show cancellation in Anaheim, CA. In the meantime the new product introductions that people would have seen on-line from the January NAMM show will have to wait until you can go into a local store later in the year 2021 and see them in person or get video demos sporadically as they come out. It's a musically sad time when the huge NAMM show has to be canceled but there is musical light at the end of the tunnel!

During the year I personally get invited to private showings of these new instruments including famous acoustic pianos, digital pianos, keyboards, synthesizers, music computer software, guitars, drums, music audio equipment, drums, etc so I will still be seeing and playing them in person but just not all in one place. Being around great musical instruments being playing by great musicians is always a thrill and I look forward to reporting my findings to all of you through my reviews here on this digital AZ Piano Reviews blog so that you can continue to make an informed decision on which digital piano will be best for you given your budget and musical goals.
