NAMM 2017: The Guitar Channel game plan

For a third consecutive year, The Guitar Channel will be present at the Winter NAMM which is held every year in Los Angeles in Anaheim. The archives of the two preceding years are in this list.

NAMM 2017 - The game plan

To be successful in a big fair like the NAMM or the Musikmesse is a subtle mixture between a huge preparation upfront in order to maximize as much as possible the time spent on the spot while retaining open periods to leave room for the encounters that one cannot plan in advance and that it would be a shame to miss.

Here is the game plan:

NAMM - Budget

Spending 9 days and 7 nights in Los Angeles is expensive. This year again to limit the budget and also because I like this method of accommodation, I will sleep via AirBnB in a house not very far from the Convention Center allowing to do everything on foot.

For 1 person, keeping the cost down as much as possible we still arrive at a little more than 2 000 € of budget breaks down thus:

  • $700 plane flight Air France
  • $650 for 8 nights via AirBnB
  • $480 meals ($60/day approximately)
  • $350 on site travel (shuttle, taxi and train)
  • $2 180 Total

Objectives of this Californian stay

As a reminder, because I am sometimes asked the question, I work 100% for The Guitar Channel since 2012: doing the preparation and organization of all the interviews, taking care of the production of audio and video content, management of the website, community management, business development, etc. And I am loving it!

Here's a YouTube playlist of the videos produced last year:

Amplify your passion, join the club...

...and contribute to the financing of this trip while benefiting from access to the private community (cited by all backstagers as the main benefit of the club) and all the exclusive content.

See you at NAMM!
