Held every year in Anaheim, California the NAMM show is a must-attend event of the year. This trade-only event sees small and large developers and manufacturers from across the world gathering to show off their latest products for musicians, DJs and more.

Last year’s show was a huge success with a whopping 101,726 visitors attending and exploring products from more than 1,700 exhibitors showcasing over 6,000 brands.

These companies won’t be releasing what they have in store for us until 19th January but rumours are flying and NAMM have given us previews and snippets of what is to come.

The Gibson Acoustic range has been revealed but the full 2017 range has yet to be finalised so visitors could be expecting to see something new and exciting.

Akai has already released a sneak peek video of a potential new product so will they be revealing this at NAMM?

Martin has unveiled its 2 millionth guitar which features a built-in watch and £127,000 D-200 Deluxe acoustics plus  they have released 7 high-end acoustic guitars. The brand also has plans to expand its 16 series line so expect more to appear at NAMM.

Roland has already annouced new audio interfaces, keyboards and a mini iOS mixer but will more products be appearing at this year's show?

 

Visitors will be able to choose from over 100 education sessions and more than 150 networking events to attend.
