The Summer NAMM Show (July 18-20, Music City Center, Nashville) is far more compact than its older sibling institution, which takes place in Anaheim, CA, each January. But, although theWinter NAMM Show has become the new nexus for pro-audio products and technology
, eclipsing the fading AES Show’s equipment expo in recent years, the summer show is also where those products receive the nominations for pro audio’s equivalent of the Oscars: theTEC Awards
. The nominees, from which the winner will be announced early next year at the TEC Awards 35th-annual event, were announced on Thursday, July 18, and the list included a number of SVG Sponsors, as well as key pro-audio brands.
