The Artist Relations Endorse Expo gives you the ability to interface directly with artists in a way to meaningfully demonstrate, teach, & show your products. Have potential endorsers truly understand the features, benefits, & advantages, give valuable feedback and, most importantly, become zealots & advocates to grow your brand.
Meet with press in an environment where you will not be overlooked, and have the ability to give an interview where you're not drowned out by the surrounding noise of a trade show.
Your Area: You will have a minimum of a 10 foot area for display/demo purposes. We will supply you with a 6 foot table with the area surrounding the table for any instrument stands, etc. If you do not need a table, but just a blank area instead, please let us know. Some companies are bringing a full backdrop and signage, others are just displaying on their 6 foot table- the choice is yours.
What to bring: Of course, have the products you want to show and demonstrate to the artists but you may also bring a cameras & video gear in case you want to shoot photos/video. Need help manning the booth or at NAMM? Let us know & we should be able to find some local talent that you can hire. (It's a lot less expensive than flying someone in.)
Don't forget your set-up needs such as:
• Tools, extension cables and power strips, electrical connectors, instruments, microphones, power, and hookup cables, guitar stands and straps, tape, mixers, preamps, signal processing, computers, etc.
• Bring literature
• Press kits- We expect most press to show up between 12pm – 1pm; please have some press kits available
• Please let us know your electrical needs.
Setup Time & Information: Tuesday, Jan 23th - 2 days before NAMM. We recommend that you arrive no later than 9:30am to set-up so that you are ready to go by noon for press arrival. Some manufacturers will be setting up the night before. Please note, some of the artists might arrive early. Also, this is a catered event so there will be plenty of food!
This is a one-day artist only event- DEALERS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT THE ENDORSE EXPO
