NAMM Show, one of the largest international events on professional audio and music technology, returns this week with the Belive in Music event. At Microfusa we present the main novelties of this year
Every year in Southern California, during the month of January, the NAMM Show takes place, the world’s largest gathering of music technology, sound and entertainment. A massive event that brings together more than 115,000 registrants from 130 countries. Due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19 and putting the safety and health of organizers and participants first, NAMM has focused this year’s meeting on the Believe in Music event.
Believe in Music is a two-pronged initiative. On the one hand, a combination of comprehensive programming and professional education that will be carried out through the BelieveinMusic.tv channel. On the other hand, an interactive market that will connect sellers and buyers, designed to stimulate innovation and inspiration from the sector, grow business connections and launch new products.
And precisely, what interests us most at Microfusa are the news. We know that you are also interested in them, so we are going to tell you a little about the latest that the big brands have released.
