NAMM's GenNext Program

NAMM's Believe in Music Week

January 18-22, 2021

Believe in Music Week is a new virtual event and global gathering to unify and support people who bring music to the world, taking place the week of January 18, 2021. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, there is no path forward to safely hold  The NAMM Show this January in Southern California. While The NAMM Show cannot be replaced, we are excited about Believe in Music week, which will offer:  

  • A robust marketplace to launch new products and connect buyers and sellers.  
  • Education and events for all segments of the industry.  
  • Live music and concerts to raise awareness and financial support for our NAMM family, especially those in the live event and touring industry.
  • Participatory music making events.
