They now have "yellow" sunday only tickets available cause they wanna only have "friends"/non-industry people coming in sunday as to not interfere with business.

it would be cool if they put "x" aside and had a lottery so john Q public could get in and check out the goodness

Didn't you guys get robbed a year or two ago? I remember pulling into the parkinglot and the cops were all over the place. I asked someone what was going on and they said the bank got robbed. Cool man. The national sales rep from Martin Guitars takes me there all the time. We'll have to hook up for a drink after work. Phone Post

i been with the company 1.5 years. dont know the story.

i work at one of the corporate offices(IT), so we wouldnt have gotten held up anyway.

i think the closest branch is in the vons plaza across from maria's

great job, getting wined and dined by clients...

i dont know if it was you, or someone else in corp, but my best friend works for Fuchs audio. national sales manager.

so he tells me how bad of a business persons andys wife is . someone (maybe you) wants to BUY a fuchs pedal for themselves and annette wouldnt even give them a discount or free shipping - lmao .... opportunity lost!!!

but, they do make the best pedals....bought 2 myself...expensive though

anyway - let me when you're around

 Iron Man, You are thinking of Jimmy Williams whose screen name escapes me at the moment.

He's a cool cat. Wish I'd gotten a chance to hang out with him more.

No NAMM for me this year, can't justify the expense.

If I went to NAMM I'd have to take out a bank loan for all the shit I'd end up buying.

last year NAMM really discouraged show sales (sunday only)...most vendors were giving out cards saying "call me and i'll give you show price and free shipping once i get back to the office....which stopped my impulse buying....but....I'm still taking a couple grand with me this year just in case...

oh, and not everyone is selling at the show. Some folks say buy there distributor at discount, others say no discount see retailer.

smaller companies who don't wanna lug shit back home will sell at the show. it all depends.

forget companies like fender, marshall, gibson, and the like selling anything

they have their "show displays" set and ship them all over the world.

i think a Europe show in germany is pretty close and they just pack up what and send it there right after namm

http://www.namm.org/thenammshow/2011/badges

NAMM Introduces "Sunday Only" Yellow Badge
New yellow badge option helps you manage your allotment so you can get more business done.

The new Sunday Only yellow badge gives Exhibitors another option.

Please take a look at your current yellow badge list, decide who needs to be there all four days and give them the traditional yellow badge.

For all the others, give them the Sunday Only yellow badge. We're offering a generous allotment of Sunday Only badges so that you can continue to invite those non-industry guests you’ve been inviting in the past. To clarify, Exhibiting Companies will have the same number of visitor badges you have always had, and now you will also have a separate and equal allotment of Sunday Only Badges.
Sunday Only guests must be at least 18 years old.


The goal with this change is to relieve some of the aisle congestion on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. In the past few years we've taken many steps to enhance the value of the blue buyer badges (early floor access and preferred parking) and this change will help our buyers get around easier and get more business done.
