“This spring, we amped up our webinars to help NAMM members navigate business in the time of COVID-19,” said Zach Phillips, NAMM’s director of professional development. “The webinars proved to be popular, so we’re expanding upon the online education this summer as we all navigate new business realities. The NAMM U Virtual Summit will offer a dozen Zoom super-sessions that hone in on the most vital topics going forward, along with some fascinating sessions that highlight the changing industry. Think of it as a mid-year refresher — and an opportunity to stay ahead of the curve.”

The Summit will feature one webinar per day, per track, for a total of 14 sessions. A account is required to register; please visit to log in or create a new account before registering. The NAMM U Virtual Summit is free and open to all industry professionals.
