NAMM Releases Details on Retail Innovation Summit & Retail Financial Summit

Organizers of the 2020 NAMM Show, happening Jan. 16-19 in Anaheim, CA, have announced some preliminary details for the pre-show The Retail Innovation Summit and the Retail Financial Summit. These two day-long summits are an opportunity for NAMM's retail members to get future-focused retail and financial strategies and explore innovative ways to amplify their retail success and reshape their future. Held at the Anaheim Hilton on Wednesday, January 15 before the show opens, both Summits run concurrently and are free to NAMM members with advance registration.

At the Retail Innovation Summit, best-selling author, sales and marketing expert Marcus Sheridan – previous host of two standing-room-only NAMM U Breakfast Sessions – will walk attendees through the changing behavior of consumers, and strategies to deliver in your business. At this Summit, attendees will discover how the shift in buying will influence sales and marketing in the retail music business going forward and what types of content and messaging do and don’t move the revenue needle. He’ll also reveal how to integrate video effectively into your sales and marketing efforts, and how you can set up an in-house media company at your own business to increase traffic, both online and in-store.

New for 2020, the Retail Financial Summit will provide the critical financial training music retailers require to thrive in today’s competitive marketplace, while looking at new trends and developments that will impact their business. Presented by industry financial gurus Alan Friedman and Daniel Jobe of Friedman, Kannenberg & Co., the pair will address new financial trends, regulatory updates and highlight recent changes in sales tax and labor laws that are impacting you and your business. Plus, they’ll address specific audience questions, so you’ll walk away with a clear picture of how to take control of your store’s financial health.

Registration for both Summits is currently open to NAMM members registered for The 2020 NAMM Show.
