Generation Next programming examines hot topics and relevant issues in the music products industry, as well as nurtures future music creators, innovators, and business leaders. Indeed, Generation Next gives college music students and faculty one-of-a-kind exposure to careers in the music products industry!

“My overall experience at NAMM was amazing," says 2014 Generation Next attendee Michael Mullens from University of Massachusetts, "It is like nothing else in the industry, and I am going to cherish the knowledge learned for years to come. It gave me ideas for my future and has definitely changed the way I work with technology and how it is integrated into music. I hope to be at many more NAMM Shows in the future.”
