Here are a couple of exciting sessions that we wanted to highlight as an example of the kind of content that you’ll have access to in-person at the show:
NAMM Marketing Summit
Discover how to elevate your marketing, sales, and leadership through the power of brand storytelling. You have a great brand and product, and you want to turn prospects into lifelong customers. Unfortunately, most marketing falls flat. Why? Because it doesn’t tell your story — quickly and effectively. And for that reason, you’ll want to join this special NAMM Marketing Summit, held Wednesday, April 12, the day before the start of The 2023 NAMM Show.
NAMM Succession Summit
This special half-day education session, presented by music industry accounting pros Alan Friedman and Daniel Jobe of Friedman, Kannenberg & Co., will immerse you in the essentials of succession planning. They’ll show you how to evaluate the activities that do and don’t add value to your business and how to calculate the dollar amount of what your store is truly worth. They’ll also look at the pros and cons of various music store transition options (such as internal and external transfer, gift, sale and liquidation), including the effect each option has on cash, control and tax as illustrated in five real-life music store transition case studies. Join Friedman and Jobe for this must-attend session for any music store owner exploring acquisition candidates, approaching retirement and looking to sell, or proactively developing an exit strategy to transition and cash out.
