At the International Music Products Association, all the world's a band. Known as the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), it's a non-profit group of more than 9,000 musical equipment and products makers, distributors, and retailers in 100-plus countries. NAMM boasts a pair of annual trade shows (one each in Southern California and Nashville) that attract key players from the music products industry. It also lobbies government, publishes a product review and a magazine, and offers seminars and other educational opportunities. It also funds music-related outreach programs, as well as several charities. NAMM was founded in the early 1900s as the National Association of Piano Dealers of America.
