Sparrow Guitars President Billly Bones will be attending the 2008 Summer NAMM Show as part of the NAMM University Sessions. The NAMM Show brings the music world together from top industry musicians, producers and engineers to buyers for the major and independent music stores. The 2008 Summer NAMM Show takes place in Nashville, Tennessee at the Nashville Convention Center from June 20-22, 2008.
NAMM University is proud to offer the ever-popular free Breakfast Sessions each morning in the Grand Ballrooms of the Renaissance Nashville Hotel. On Friday, June 20th Sparrow Guitars President Billy Bones will accompany NAMM President/CEO Joe Lamond for the State of the Industry address. The State of the Industry Address begins Friday June 20th at 8 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom at the Renaissance Nashville. In the annual State of the Industry Address, NAMM President/CEO Joe Lamond will explore the current state of the industry and discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities that will influence the music products community during the second half of the year and beyond.
"Sparrow Guitars is honored to have been invited by Joe Lamond to contribute to the 2008 Summer NAMM Show" said Sparrow Guitars President Billy Bones. "Sparrow is a young and unique type of manufacturer so I believe I will provide a different perspective on the state of the musical instrument industry."
NAMM University is a series of discussions, panels and lectures exploring and sharing the "best practices" between NAMM members. In this time of rapid change in the musical instrument industry, there is no better way to understand and profit from the changes than to hear the strategies of NAMM members who have already found a solution. Instead of learning the hard way — through trial and error — NAMM University attendees can tap into the knowledge and experience of other successful NAMM members. Breakfast Sessions are scheduled every morning before the show floor opens. These are in-depth panel discussions featuring industry insiders discussing their thoughts, ideas, and strategies for doing business in today's aggressive marketplace.
