NAMM celebrates retail excellence

NAMM, the world’s largest not-for-profit music trade organisation representing the $17 billion music industry, announced its list of independent music product retailers to be honoured at the Top 100 Dealer Awards taking place at The 2024 NAMM Show in January.

The annual awards honour retailers from around the globe who demonstrated exceptional commitment to their stores, communities and customers and share in the vision of creating a more musical world through their localities. 

Now in its 13th year, this year’s Top 100 list includes nine first-time honorees and 11 international retailers representing Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

Additionally, nearly half (48) of the companies have 10 or fewer store employees with 22 of those employing less than five full-time staffers. 

The Top 100 Awards Show will be held on Wednesday 24th January at The 2024 NAMM Show highlighting category winners, including: 

Best Community Retail Store; Best Customer Service; Best Store Design; Innovation Award; Best Marketing and Sales Promotion; Best Online Engagement; Music Makes a Difference Award; with one store taking home the coveted NAMM Dealer of the Year Award. 

Each submission for the Top 100 Award was evaluated by a panel of independent judges overseen by NAMM staffers.
